It's a wiki, designed as a sort of open-source version of those ubiquitous city guides that you can find six thousand of in any bookstore. Indexed by locale and category, it has zillions of entries for restaurants and stores and such. It's pretty data-light at this point -- I think they generated their initial data set off of Google, so most of those entries don't have unique content yet -- but it seems like an idea well worth encouraging. So spread the word, and put in commentary on a few of your favorite restaurants...
