    Think this is going to give Yelp a good run for the money?

      The Zagat brand for me has little credibility in selecting places to eat, so I won't be rushing over to google's version of it just yet...

      1. Jim Leff just opined on the Zagat deal so I thought I'd share it here.

          Count me in as preferring the "hairball" approach to identifying deliciousness.

            TY Melanie! He makes some great points. So far on G+ I see more comparisons of Yelp and Zagat when talking about this. I am pointing in my posts to us here at CH. We ain't perfect but we give great content!
            I think the deal can only add to ways for folks to find and talk about great places to eat. I sure am not giving up my Chow!
