Feast: Another new site for L.A. restaurants
As we mentioned last week, NBC-owned Feast has joined the L.A. food site fray with features including videos and a Metacritic-style system of restaurant ratings. Joshua Lurie of FoodGPS is one of the writers, while longtime L.A. writer Carole Dixon is editing the site. At the moment, the restaurant ratings seem completely incomprehensible, but perhaps as more reviews are added the numbers will start to even out? Because it doesn't make any sense at all for Barbrix to get a 57 "Good" rating while in the Silver Lake area, only Cha Cha Cha rates a 69 "very good." When was the last time anyone reviewed Cha Cha Cha, anyway? Only Bazaar seems to rate over 80 or "near epic"
