Restaurant Guide Index:
(List of Recommended Restaurants from Various Sources)
This is a “master list” of restaurants that I have seen on the Internet or other sources and would like to try, or that I think would be of interest to others. I do not mean for this to be an exhaustive list of every good place to eat, but it should represent a good sample of the most interesting or unique restaurants, along with a few that best represent an area’s regional cuisine.
Geographic Coverage: This list came about as a result of search tools that were available on the old Urbanspoon.com web site so that I could compile a list of what I thought might be the best restaurants in any city, region, or state. The “best” is subjective, with a high priority given to ethnic restaurants and regional specialties in each state (it is what I would look for when traveling, and I do not claim anything more than this).
Urbanspoon was purchased by Zomato.com, and I found that the former search tools were no longer available (nor is there anything similar on other web sites). As a result I am planning to limit the geographical coverage to the states I was able to research while Urbanspoon was on line. Of course I use other sources to complete the list, but the skeleton of it was only possible while Urbanspoon was available.
The following are states I have researched on Urbanspoon with the plan to eventually include in the Restaurant Guide, but which are not yet published:
Alaska, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin
