In my quest, to explore new restaurants, I find and list them on this blog (left side). While finding blogs, forum areas, internet and blog sites, articles, reviews etc. and after bookmarking them, I place them for your review. I found that The New Yorker magazine has a nice site with restaurant reviews, food ideas and much more.
Click on the restaurant at the top of the page and explore by clicking the pulldown menus. This one details their review of the best new restaurants in New York City for 2009.
