The #nomnom list, from Yelp.
. You're so useful when it comes to addresses and hours of operation, and so un-useful when it comes to anything resembling good advice.
Witness Yelp's new Top 100 Places to Eat
list ("100 must-try spots in the US to get your #nomnom on"
) which includes not a single New Orleans restaurant, bar, deli counter, food truck or second-line barbecue rig
The website uses something called a "Wilson score"
to determine its findings:
The "Wilson score."
Very scientific, and a formula that results in a Haleiwa, Hawaii food truck called "Dat Cajun Guy"
outranking every place in Louisiana. (No shade to "Dat Cajun Guy," whose food looks pretty good.)
It could be worse: Portland, Ore.'s Willamette Week points out
that a closed food cart in Portland outranked New York's Le Bernardin
, and a Portland establishment called "Waffle Window" topped New York's Per Se.
Our #nomnom must be off.
