YELP is a website, originally based in San Francisco, that lets regular people like you and me help each other out. how? by letting us rate businesses and review them. you can rate and review all kinds of different businesses, from dentists, to restaurants, hair salons, pretty much anything! if you're unsure of a restaurant you'd like to try, you can search it, and read reviews from other people to see what they thought of it.
i usually check the "Hot New Businesses" on Yelp, and came across this restaurant : WADA.
it is a Japanese restaurant, open since August of 2011. they did not advertise much for it, so business started out slow, but after a review in the newspaper about it, it started to pick up speed... and now that its on Yelp's radar, more people have gone to eat there.... i mean hey - that's how i found it!
this is probably one of the best meals i've ever had.... so far anyway :)
keep in mind however, this is an EXPENSIVE place to eat. i recommend bringing a date here (wink wink!), or eating here for a special occasion (mother's day, father's day, birthday, etc.). to give you an idea: there were 4 of us, and INCLUDING tip, dinner was a little over $200 - thats about $50 per person, without drinks (we had water), and with no sushi/fish items. if you add sushi items, your bill will be much higher i'm sure.
speaking of sushi - they also have a sushi bar you can sit at and watch the sushi chef in action. many people appear to order the raw beef and uni sushi, which looks really good - but i can't eat it, so i can't tell you. it breaks my heart. but if you get to try it, please let me know what i'm missing b/c i'm sure i'm missing something amazing :(
