Travel tip: How to get an insider restaurant recommendation

Selecting the right restaurant in a city you’re visiting can be daunting. Make the wrong pick and you’ve wasted an opportunity to have a memorable meal someplace new. Danny Meyer, restaurateur and author of Setting the Table, offered what I thought was a brilliant tip in a Wall Street Journal Q/A this weekend: When you dine at a restaurant you enjoy during a trip, ask the staff there to recommend other local restaurants they think serve the same caliber of meal. As he says, the question is sure to get them talking, and you’ll leave with some insider recommendations.
