First off, let me apologize if this is being posted to the wrong board. In reading through some of the old postings, I know that you've had a recent spate of bad apples here.
This is a great site. I stumbled across is a few days ago doing a google search on "nyc restaurant review". I'm coming to NYC for a few days at the end of next week and I was doing some restaurant research. Doing some searches on this board helped me make my choices. I have reservations at Veritas on friday night and Lupa on Saturday. I'm looking forward to it, should be fun.
I'm in Minneapolis. And I love good food and good wine. I'll certainly be participating here on the midwest board. Because there is good food out here, you just need to look a little harder to find it.
