About the Cover

When deciding where to dine out, do you consult an online restaurant review site such as Yelp, Urbanspoon, TripAdvisor, or one of the many others? These reviews provide dinners with information regarding prices, food and service quality, ambiance, and sanitation levels through social media platforms, and have become a popular way to guide dining decisions. This issue’s cover article assesses the relevance between online restaurant reviews and restaurant inspection results from health departments. Does quality indicated in online reviews correlate with sanitation conditions?
