Miami and San Francisco – reflecting DiningGuide’s coast-to-coast North American coverage – are the first two metro areas with results posted at www.DiningGuide.com. DiningGuide soon will release its “Best of 2006” results for winners in its other metropolitan areas.

“Because opinions from our community are important to DiningGuide, we ask readers for the inside scoop. Not only do we care about who rates high, we want to know why,” said Mark Metz, MetroGuide CEO. “As always, DiningGuide invites readers to share specific dining experiences by using our convenient review system.”
