http://mcslimjb.blogspot.com/2010/05/10-critical-website-mistakes-that.html A blogger who usually just writes about the food ends up sounding like one of us. The reviews are specific to Boston-area restaurants but I have a hard time believing that if I looked at the sites for other cities' restaurants I wouldn't see the same sins repeated.

"[R]estaurants should keep their websites lean, clean, fast-loading, and easy to navigate, especially from mobile platforms..."

Shocking idea, particularly from a non-usability person, eh?

It has always amazed me how restaurant sites are still one of the places where gratuitous Flash really seems to be very common, despite the fact that Flash is probably more detrimental to the user experience than most other sites not having such a high instance of mobile users. Nice find.
