Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Restaurant goers are starved for information. The short, terse entries of many restaurant guides don't give them what they need and trolling the net can be a never-ending hunt. To discover the best eating spots, they want full-length, brutally honest independent critiques, the kind of reviews that have made Fearless Critic a standard setter. This Seattle restaurant guide sets out your breakfast, lunch, and dinner options with 300 comprehensive, full-page reviews. To make the guide even more useful, editor Robin Goldstein has provided 40 pages of cross-referenced lists for everything from restaurants with outdoor table or live music to vegetarian and family fare. A keeper; priced less than the cost of one bad meal.
