Rate a dish after you've eaten it at the restaurant
After you've eaten your meal, the waiter comes up to you and
politely asks you to rate your dish on a scale of 0-5 and text this
rating in addition to the dish number and a restaurant code to
some number (actually a web server). The restaurant now has a
rating for their dishes. The user could
be given a coupon or
something for his rating.
This data can be fed ;) to websites like zagat, yelp etc.
we have the Phantom Gourmet who does this...

||I thought I was going to hate this idea, but it kind
of grows on you. Sure, there'll be a lot of noise in
the data. A lot depends on who you're with, what
your standards are, and why you came to a
restaurant in the first place. Real gastronomes
won't be happy with anything like this, but I'd like
||they should offer a prize as an incentive.
||At the beginning of every month the restaurant can print out the
overall ranking for each dish and add it to the menu as an
||[+].. but why does the waiter have to ask you? Why can't you submit the review online at home where you don't have to pay SMS charges? What's the income model? How does this work in restaurants where the chef actually knows his stuff and customers don't stick to the menu?
||The guy that does the Phantom Gourmet show, I rate him a 10. He is cute. cute cute. Ooops sorry.
The idea is okay too.
