Find the Perfect Restaurant?

I've been tasked with organizing at least 4 holiday lunches and dinners for various work-related teams and groups of friends in the next few weeks. I'm sick of all my regular out-to-eat haunts. What's the best way to find a great new restaurant?

Yelp would be my first recommendation; what about you? Where do you turn to find the perfect restaurant? Let us know in the comments.


    There's a few online sites where you can search by various things you want (cuisines, atmospheres, live music etc):

    (for disclosure, i work for the 1st one :) but any of these should be able to help people find something new -- and they include user reviews)

    Australian Dining Out Reviews - was rated 42nd of last week's issue of BRW magazine for Top 100 Australian Web 2.0 Applications 2008. Besides the user-friendly search on Virtual Earth feature, it now hosts 1000+ deliciously looking food pictures and growing. a truly appetitising experience browsing through them. it would be very interesting if it covers restaurants all over Australia. is a good one.
