What if you could turn all that Internet fractiousness to your advantage?
In that spirit, I loved this advice from Anthony Bourdain: When you're about to travel somewhere unfamiliar, and you don't know anyone there for recommendations on where to eat... post a fake, positive food review on a travel site.
Then, wait for all the angry food nerds to tell you how wrong you are and about all the other places you should go instead.
Bingo! You're all set to eat better than you ever could have managed otherwise.
