Mapping is all the rage these days. Here's Stanley Kwong's Chowhound's 100 Ultimate Restaurants mapped on Google, broken down by price, no less. Thanks, Stanley.

Note to those whining that their neighborhood isn't well-represented: If you live in Redondo Beach or Simi Valley, you probably didn't move there for the restaurants. Does it really come as such a shock that some areas have more well-regarded restaurants than others? If you disagree, feel free to let me know. Still, I think the most under-appreciated restaurant area right now could be North Hollywood.
