Consensus Opinions [split from Boston]

[Note: This post split from the Boston board at: -- The Chowhound Team]].

I understand. I'm pretty close to NH and will have to make a journey down I-93 to lower Mass Ave., as well. But why do you need a consensus of hounds to decide whether the new dog is as good/better than the old one? Do you mean that you would only take the trip if there is such a consensus? Wouldn't you want to make up your own mind?

If there was a huge group of people that said that the dog's gone to the dogs - it's no good any more - then I could see that a negative consensus might keep me from bothering to make the trip. But there's been no such mass response. It's a fact that it's changed - but that alone shouldn't keep a hound from checking it out. I'm planning a trip right now - my regular rounds of Reliable and Kotobukiya - but now, instead of a katsu kare or maybe a burger at O'Sullivan's, I'll journey on down to Newmarket for a new and improved (maybe) Speed's Hot Dog.

I guess all I'm saying is that this site is good for information of all sorts - good, bad, good-but... If I waited for a true consensus before deciding on a place, I'd miss out on a lot.
