Have read and heard good things about the NY Zagat, although Chowhounds routinely trashed the LA version on the LA board. Believe it was something about the Olive Garden being ranked so highly that got to them! I feel that in some cities the Zagat guide is really only useful as a source for checking a phone number or address, while in other cities the information about food and dining experiences is pretty good. How do we rate the raters here? Do I go buy the Boston Zagat?
