Been to fancy places? Greek, African? Review 'em this week!

Call me a glutton for punishment, but I'm about to post a new (quarterly) edition of my tip sheet/FAQ. There has been such a flurry of good survey-of-the-scene posts on topics ranging from ice cream to Russian food that I think this is going to fill in a lot of the areas that were grievous omissions in the previous iteration. But, there's always more to be done. So if anybody wants to tackle any of the following in any way shape or form, they will help make it that much more useful:

--Fancy places! If you've been to any of the hot new places in town, review them now-- there are a number of big name restaurants that have never been covered here.

--Greektown! This has got to be the best-known, least reviewed ethnic cuisine here. We have a couple of brief recent posts, but nobody's ever done an even semi-comprehensive one.

--African! Some scattered posts, but it'd be great if someone who knows something about this wanted to kind of cover the scene.

Not that comprehensive posts are the be-all and end-all-- I'm trying to add more references to individual places within the links section, too-- but it's sure helpful to have one or two posts that sketch out the lay of the land and identify the more famous spots for neophytes, like the ice cream posts that Zim and Vital Info provided in the last few days do. (I also find that because they're aiming to be comprehensive, those posts almost always include some lesser known spots that might not be worthy of a post on their own. So far from establishing an official list, I find they tend to help uncover obscurities.)
