  6. Get Hip to Citysearch Guides

    September 26, 2012 by Sid E. Serch

    Introducing Citysearch Guides! It’s a brand spankin’ new product that empowers our team of expert scouts, consisting of everyone from Top Chefs to the Mayor of Portland to well respected food writers and photographers to create stunning, photocentric lists of well, just about anything they want. They’re sort of like treasure maps, navigating you to spoils hiding around your city and across the country. Want to discover the most scenic waterfall hikes in Southern California or go to every bar in Philadelphia serving beers for under a dollar? Well there’s a guide for that.  There could also be a guide chronicling every place George Washington has ever rested his head or the gems that you most have to visit on a road trip of the deep South. We know what you’re thinking. That sounds AWESOME! That is everything I’ve ever wanted, and I might be in love with guides. Well good, we’re taken with them as well.  Now quit lollygagging and check out some of the guides our scouts have made recently and then start thinking of ideas for your own awesome lists, since

    we’ll soon be debuting the option for the public to create guides of their own.

They’re exploring their cities mouth first to find the best in just about everything food related. But who are these guys and why should you trust them to tell you where to eat?

    Let’s start with Hungry in Los Angeles Host Adrianna Adarme.

    Name: Adrianna Adarme

    Blog: A Cozy Kitchen

    How Long have you lived in Los Angeles: 5 years

    Favorite dish in LA: Fried Egg Rolls from Golden Deli 

    Best Meal You’ve ever had: The Vagrancy Project at The Allston Yacht Club

    If you had a mission statement, what would it be? Faster, cuter, stronger.

    Now let’s head to San Francisco where Marcia Gagliardi’s blog, Table Hopper is the be-all-end-all of Bay Area food writing.  She is like the princess and the pea of eating, seriously.

    Name: Marcia Gagliardi

    Blog: tablehopper.com

    How Long have you lived in San Francisco: Since September 1994.

    Favorite dish in town: Again and again, I fall in love with the pasta dishes at SPQR.

    Best meal you’ve ever had: It’s the Christmas Eve fish fest (“La Vigilia”) with the Italian side of my family, every year.

    If you had a mission statement, what would it be? Live enthusiastically, be curious, be friendly.

    Next up to bat is the incomparable meat lover Josh Ozersky,

    founder of Meatopia and man of a million food adjectives.

    Name: Josh Ozersky 

    Blog: Ozersky.TV, Rachael Ray.com, Time.com

    How Long have you lived in New York: 10 years

    Favorite dish in town: First-cut “deckle” pastrami, with french fries and dr. brown’s black cherry soda at Katz’s.

    Best Meal You’ve ever had: Meatopia 2012!

    If you had a mission statement, what would it be? “The fat is the meat, and the meat is the vegetable.”

    Finally we head Southwest to meet Austin’s pride and joy Tolly Moseley whose love of her city , as expressed through her culture blog, AustinEavesdropper could probably convince you to relocate in under an hour.

    Name: Tolly Moseley 

    Blog: AustinEavesdropper.com

    How Long have you Live in Austin: On and off for many years — but at this point, the last 5 years consecutively.

    Favorite Dish in town: Smoked Bacon/Mint/Feta Brussels Sprouts from Second Bar + Kitchen.

    Best Meal You’ve ever had: One time, my husband and I had a big certificate to Uchiko (Chef Paul Qui’s restaurant), and, feeling rich … my husband snapped the menu shut, and simply told the waiter, “Dazzle us.” (PS he never talks like this). We ended up spending the equivalent of our monthly mortgage that night on top of the gift certificate, but it was worth it! Tasting after tasting of beautifully-composed, non-traditional sushi rolls, like my favorite, the Tiger Cry: Cured wagyu beef, rice paper, red pepper, charred green onion. It’s not for purists, but it’s a tasty little bite.

    If you had a mission statement, what would it be?  Be a better listener.

  9. There's a New Citysearch in Town…

    June 28, 2012 by Sid E. Serch

    Why is everything 3 stars? Are three stars good? Are three stars bad? Why is this person using a business page on a peer review site to air out their fears about turning 40?

    If you have asked yourself any of these questions, the new Citysearch is for you. If you haven’t asked yourself any of these questions, but like going out to eat, or shopping or getting massages, the new Citysearch is for you too.

    We’re entered a new era: one of recommendations, not reviews.

    What’s the distinction you ask? It seems small, infinitesimal. Just semantics you say.

    But it’s not, it’s huge.

    Recommendations are 140 characters on mobile and 280 on the web. Brevity is key.

    Recommendations combine both the advice of hand-selected tastemakers with user voting to help distinguish the best businesses in your city.

    Recommendations come with a scorecard for more discerning information, not a smattering of stars.

    The result? You can make fast and informed decisions about the businesses you’re planning on visiting.

    What else? New & Notable businesses selected every three days by big shot bloggers and tastemakers featured on the homepage of ten amazing cities across the country. Oh yeah— and there’s also our brand spankin’

    new look and a handsome mascot named Sid E. Serch.

    In other words–I think you’re going to like the new Citysearch!
