I've noticed certain prolific posters recommending restaurants in different cities both regionally and nationally. I can't help but wonder if these posters have actually been to these restaurants regularly or at least multiple times in the past couple of years? I start ignoring their posts unless they can provide some specifics of their most recent meals.
What is your standard in recommending restaurants? I usually provide full disclosure if I've only had one (good) meal at a restaurant I'm recommending or if I've had historically good experiences over the years. I feel comfortable recommending, without caveat, my regular restaurants (at least 4-times a year if not more depending on price point).
