Sometimes I just want to quickly look up some dining options when I know I'll be in an unfamiliar neighborhood in a few hours. It's great when you can cross-search by things like neighborhood, cuisine, average cost, etc. This would also be helpful when I travel for work and need to book for groups.

What are your favorite places to use (until I have better luck with chowhound's search engine :))? I'm willing to pay if it means a good option.
