How to Tell You Picked the Wrong Restaurant

by Royal City Travel Guelph -

Alex Vallis, Senior Digital Editor of Food & Wine Magazine, posted an article in the “Mouthing Off” column of the blog: 5 Signs You’ve Picked a Bad Restaurant is intended to prep diners of a slightly higher budget for choosing the right spot as the Fall high season for restaurant openings returns.

The list applies more specifically to upscale eateries but is practical enough for all diners to learn a thing or two. After all, if you’re going to splurge on a nice meal, you certainly want to get your money’s worth.

5. You’ve been ushered in off the street. 
“It’s unlikely that one restaurant on a touristy strip will be any different from the others just because an animated host told you how great it is. A similar phenomenon occurs with online deals: Ryan Sutton, a Bloomberg critic and the blogger behind The Bad Deal, compared buying these deals to ordering products from infomercials. If someone who you don’t know, whose opinions you aren’t familiar with, and who has a 100-percent bias is trying to convince you to eat at a particular restaurant, you might want to do a little more research before committing to a meal.”
