I like this one from the Restaurants and Cooks page:

Fast Times with Ferran Adri

Spain's Ferran Adri likes to play with liquid nitrogen and calcium chloride. He fashions paella out of Rice Krispies, entraps quail eggs....

I don't know how their restaurant review system works. They list a place called "Harry's" (which I initially thought might be part of the Sam & Harry's regime) which is in the Hotel Harrington. They give it 4 1/2 stars out of five.

Quiznos got 5 stars. It appears to be based on user reviews. Just as useful as the anonymous washingtonpost.com user reviews.

Yes, but where did they come from? The site just went live today. The reviews appear to come from some 3rd party vendor.

Ha! I go to Harry's -- when I want to get bombed on Christmas as a result of my family being crazy and nothing else is open. On that night, and that night alone, it earns its stars.

Yahoo has had user ratings and reviews of restaurants, hotels, and such for some time now. This new food thang just uses those, it appears.

If both Subway and Oceanair Seafood Room get the same "star" rating, then their star rating system useless.
Ruby Tuesday, Good Guys, Domino's Pizza, and Michel Richard Citronelle all get 5 stars. YES!!! And Popeye's. And places that don't even exist, like Kuna.

Typically a website like this goes live (or becomes open to the general public) months after being open to a smaller group of invitation-only users. The smaller beta group of users helps to develop content.

We should all chime in and rate the best joints in town as zero stars. Keep the f*cking riff-raff out.

Is there any way to start an "on a whim" thread?

Meet you at Arby's for happy hour,

Al
