How to Find The Best Restaurants in a New City

When most of us might ask a few friends, look up restaurants on Yelp or just try a random new place when we are visiting a new city, Anthony Bordain has his own unique suggestion to find the best restaurant in a new city:
Get online and write something along the lines of, "hey guys, I just had the absolute best chicken rice at [restaurant x] in Singapore, no questions asked, hands down, everything else pales in comparison," then sit back and enjoy the show as the internet foodie elite each jump into the fray to defend their own picks to the death. You'll get a much bigger response, more passionate praise, and it'll probably end up being a little fun to boot.

Have any of you ever tried this? Or do you have your own method for finding new places in new locales?

A million years ago, one can tell the best diners by how many trucks were parked in the parking lot. Truckers knew where to go through the CB and from their own experience. They seldom wasted a stop on an unknown quantity.

Bourdain? Probably one of the last guys I'd ask. The trucker idea works, as does asking a police officer (or the guys at the firehouse). Guys who eat lunch out every day tend to know where you can eat decent food for cheap.
