Back by popular demand

Last June I retired my A-Z restaurant directory after 25 years to instead focus on Featured content with photos, descriptions and web links that wasn’t really possible for all the 600+ listings in the directory. Since that time, what started out as a trickle of requests to bring back the comprehensive, cross-referenced restaurant guide has turned into a flood. Apparently not everyone prefers Yelp.

In July I created a backdoor web page to the directory that I only gave to people that contacted me but by October I was handing out a dozen links a day to this “secret” page which was kind of comical. So today I brought back the A-Z restaurant directory which contains numerous improvements that you probably won’t notice. The new Featured restaurants are in the guide as well.

The review system is still retired because it requires me to act as referee between restaurant owners and reviewers over accuracy disputes. The unmoderated wild west that is Yelp is a better place for restaurant reviews. To help bridge the gap, I added a link to the corresponding Yelp reviews to each of the 600+ pages in the directory.
