Best restaurants according to Yelp

How many times have you heard the question before: “Where should we eat?”

Truth is, we lean on others to give us the inside information on many aspects of our lives. Before we drop a ton of money on a purchase, we read all of the reviews — the good and the bad. Before committing to a gym membership, we learn about others’ experiences via social media.

This reliance is why the website Yelp.com was created. Launched in October 2004 by Jeremy Stoppelman and Russel Simmons, the San Francisco-based website publishes crowd-sourced reviews of restaurants, other businesses and attractions. It attracts roughly 142 million unique visitors per month, and nearly 245 million reviews in 15 languages have been logged.
