Update on Zagat survey

Written by Diana Nelson Jones on .


Zagat’s latest list of restaurants in the ‘burgh has come out and the comments are fast and furious. But Zagat responded to my post from yesterday in which I reported that almost everyone is outraged at the obvious corporate slant.

A member of Zagat's communications team e-mailed to clear up a misunderstanding. The Zagat Survey of Pittsburgh Restaurants that named only chains is the National Chain Restaurants Survey. He said Zagat is conducting its first-ever full survey of Pittsburgh restaurants, which you can access by clicking here.

Pittsburgh’s restaurant scene is not only emerging but popping with extremely strong local players these days. It will be gratifying to have a more full-blown survey, and that is expected early next year.
