We’ve entered an age in which many restaurant goers will do a web search for specific eateries before taking the plunge to visit them in real life. Having a well designed, easy to navigate, and informative website is going to help give potential patrons the push they need to come dine in. I decided to do a little searching myself, and put together a list of some awesome restaurant websites. Notice none of them have Flash intros….
