Finding food and dining options when traveling?

Good point--we have a smaller big city here where you can watch and see where chefs and staff go after work or on off-days.

I wish Twitter had a better search tool, so you could locate tweets and/or users related to food more quickly. Plus, I find myself liking and following places on social media but then becoming overwhelmed after I visit. If only I could dip in on that activity for a short time or quickly. As others noted, I find hotel concierges spotty--and the new service I used recently was equally spotty (Monscierge).

This sounds like my approach, nutellajar. If I can find the right twitter account and track their tweets, I've had good luck, especially connecting with chefs/restaurants with twitter accounts. But, it is a bit of work! Yelp seems to be dropping in usefulness, in my opinion.

Finding food and dining options when traveling?

When you travel to a new city, how do you find out about local food and dining spots (besides chowhound)? Are there websites you use, or mobile apps? Or, do you ask friends? I always find myself researching a new city when traveling, trying to find the best places to eat in that location--however, this can be time consuming and involves various social media and websites.

Thanks for any input.
