If you're as much into food as I am, you might want to jump in and YELP out a restaurant review. I think it will even be fun to see what others write, and it sounds like a fairly egalitarian place to share your experiences - no professional culinary background needed.

We stopped eating out & rarely get fast food any more - I can't stand getting food that isn't right (either NOT Done or just squirrely tasting) - it's a waste of food & a waste of Money! So knowing ahead of time where it's Good, or at least Safe to eat is very helpful!

We eat out and contribute posted messages to foodie BLOGs and websites hosted in NYC/NJ/CT ... this is a wonderful ide, Cate! Nothing like getting tips and reservation info, rave reviews on favorite dishes and "thumbs down" on sloppy service.

noted. I am a diabetic also...but I still eat, lol! It's all about counting the carbs. I love good food...preparing it, having friends over, and-most of all--dining out. I will certainly give this a try; sounds like fun to me! Thanks, Cate...I adore my decadent friends!

As a fellow diabetic I know that eating out can be a bit of a lottery as you never know the exact content of things including sugar content. We tend to go to a few places that know us quite well where I can ask these questions and even get things like fresh fruit salads made for me instead of puddings and things.

That's the advantage of belonging to a small local area...the local pub even cooks me sugar free scones at the men's group coffee mornings i go to. How's that for service!...so if anyone is passing the Crosskeyes Hotel in Canonbie, South West Scotland do call in.

So I got lost here. Signed up and wrote a review and then
signed up for Yellow Pages.Com and wrote a similar review
there.

Thanks Cate. Hmmm.... wonder what else out there would
let me write a review? I may have a new hobby here.

I make a killer tomato sandwich! . . .

Next time I'm in Scotland I'll get directions . . . .There is a place in Taos called "Orlando's." It's where all the locals hang out. In the cold weather there is a huge fire out front where everyone sits to wait to get in, and you get served drinks out there while you wait. Great food. If they ask "red or green" always go with green chili. Red is for grengos. Green is Southwestern.

i'm with you yvonne, we rarely eat out anymore... i am concerned about what goes into my body and you just don't know what they put in your food in restaurants... i don't use processed foods or anything with a seasoning packet in it... i do everything from scratch... if i can't pronounce it, it doesn't go into my body... no chemical preservatives with 20 letter names... no thanks... but, thanks for the article cate, as usual... noted...:)

I don't eat out because of my soy allergy. Even chefs don't know what they are cooking with! Although it is frustrating for me, at least I know what I'm eating at al times - so I can stay alive! http://www.hiddensoy.com
