Buenos Aires – Europe (and slowly spreading to other areas) has its Michelin Tire Company which produces the famed Michelin Guides to restaurants. It seems fitting, somehow, that the name of Argentina’s largest production tire company is FATE, especially when I started thinking about a restaurant guide here on SaltShaker. I get regular e-mails from readers asking for restaurant recommendations and/or commenting on my writeups, and I even sort of feel like one of those solo Michelin writers, far from home (well, really, this is home now), scribbling notes to be turned into a FATEful number of forks, stars, or what have you.
If you haven’t noted it, I added a page over there in the righthand column of Restaurant Reviews. It’s a simple listing of all the writeups that I’ve tapped out on my keyboard, along with a link to the original post. I’ve also, at least for Buenos Aires, included recommendations, or not, for places I’ve eaten at but not written up (yet). My plan is to have it become a useful tool for those searching for places to dine, and here’s where you come in. I’m not particularly concerned for places outside of BsAs, as for the most part those will be scattered reviews when I travel, and easy to glance at. I am noticing that the listing for here is a bit unwieldy. So – what makes sense to you, who actually read and use the information in my blog, for organization of this listing? Right now it’s merely alphabetical. I could do it by recommendation category, cuisine, neighborhood, or probably something I haven’t thought of… Let me know what you think – either here as a comment, or via e-mail (which seems to be the preferred method of communicating with me – I really do read all the comments though, so either works).
