Yelp Before You Die Mashup

February 26, 2010

in Food

Today, the LA Weekly released Mr. Jonathan Gold’s awesome article “99 Things to Eat in L.A. Before You Die.” Several dishes at Japanese restaurants around Los Angeles, including Urawasa, Matsuhisa, Wa Sushi, Kiroko, and Kiyokawa, made the list, woo! I recently created a Yelp account, and I just found out I can only make lists out of the places I’ve already reviewed on Yelp. Eh? Why can’t I create a list of the places I dream of going to, Yelp? Like everything on Gold’s list?

So forget Yelp. Or at least its listing feature. Here’s a list of everything on Gold’s 99 before you die list with corresponding links to Yelp, so you can more easily access maps and additional reviews about these eats. Enjoy!

I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog
