Eating out is such a privilege these days and really if you’re going to spend forty to fifty dollars on a meal you don’t want to make sure you get good food, great service and an experience that you can’t wait to get back to? I have several ideas to help you find a restaurant in your hometown or on holidays that will satisfy your taste buds. Visit us on Fork & Fire.
The internet is of course a great tool out there. Additionally, phone books give us a comprehensive list of open restaurants in the city. This list will at least help you narrow down what’s accessible to your taste buds and encourage you to ethnically narrow down the field at least.
Whether you like burgers or fish while you taste steak there is no need for a great bbq spot. You can then start the actual hunt after you’ve settled down on that.
Start asking people you are running into locally. Many locals are more than happy to share their knowledge about the local food arena. This is particularly valid when you’re on holiday. When you engage a local in conversation, the best part of this is that they will not only be able to give you information about local places to eat, but will probably be able to share their knowledge of local attractions, boutiques, spas and so on.
If you’re out and about and your nose smells something delicious, of course, go in and try it out. Look around and you can tell if the customer appears pleased. Find out the always safe line. Ask the hostess about events, and the prestige of the place.
Most of the time a hostess is a minimum wage contractor who will be happy to tell you if the food at the restaurants is not very tasty. This is only true of course if their manager is not nearby watching.
When you see a restaurant with a full parking lot that’s typically a fairly good indication you’ve found the jack pot. Most of the time a friend or two will get to know you in the city, which can push you in the right direction. For this type of thing social networks are great. People are fond of giving their opinion if you just need to know.
