If you wish to share your blog posts with the community, you are required to post at least a large portion of your blog post within your thread’s original post, not simply a link to it. If there is any advertising of any form on your blog, it is considered commercial in nature, and as such, you should join BerserkerBusiness so you can more freely list your blog on the forum.
And the point of that is to save people the time of clicking through? Isn’t making them read the list before they click through more work for them? And since I can not include the cool graphics, photos of dishes and reviews here, aren’t people better off seeing that info before deciding how much time to spend on the site? Not that I have a problem with what you are asking me to do. But it does cut both ways. How about if other people request that I post the list, I will take the time to do it. Otherwise I am just going to leave it alone.
But I would like to thank you. Sometimes the pedantry and the pettiness of the Internet creates more free publicity than if people said nothing! Let’s see what happens in other replies.
Steve, you should at least post the top 20. It’s a compelling list likely to spur discussion, and IMO the best list of its type out there. (And I say that not just because I have contributed to the reviews.)
Steve - I think it would be smart to edit your first post and include perhaps a list of the top 20, which is similar to the requirement for bloggers to put a significant portion of their blog entry in the post with the blog hyperlink. Then, presumably, we can talk about the list!
Wow… E is #3? I didn’t think it was much different at all from Saam in Beverly Hills or Minibar. Not sure what really elevates one that much more than the other. That being said, I’m glad to see Saam getting some love, I think it’s the best overall restaurant in LA. Someone told me that Saam is being changed to a new concept though.
I heard that Saam is closing though I have not heard that from the Jose Andres people. As to the difference between Minibar and e by Jose A, last year I had them combined into one entry but there was enough momentum on the ebyJose side to split them out this year. I haven’t been there (but I have been to minibar) so I can’t speak to how similar they are. Having said that, French Laundry and Per Se are almost identical food and nobody complains that Keller has two entries.
Clickbait? Actually if you are interested in the topic of dining at restaurants you will likely click, and you won’t if you don’t care. And I can tell you that if you don’t care about dining out enough to click, I don’t care if you click or not.
