There are a lot of lists of the best restaurants in the country. The food magazines have them. Zagat has one.
And then there's this list from Yelp.
Created by mining the data from their site using a combination of ratings and number of reviews, this list features everything from hot dog shacks to Michelin Star restaurants. It's so diverse that at first it's hard to make heads or tails of this list.
But read a few of the reviews and you realize there are a few common threads in all of the eateries on the list.
They're all remarkable.
They each have a point of view.
Their points of view extend beyond the food into everything they do.
They don't compromise.
If you want to create a business and a brand that customers rate as the very best, you could do worse than emulate these restauranteurs.
I think I might need to do some field "research" to gain a deeper understanding of this topic.
