It's a question that comes up often, especially when you are traveling. How do you know you are at a good restaurant?
Luckily for you, blogger Adam Roberts from Amateur Gourmet has come up with 10 clever ways of asessing a restaurant's quality. One look at his list and we agreed with all of his criteria.
For instance, Roberts suggests asking yourself things like: does the restaurant serve good bread and butter? In this day and age of artisanal breads and butters, the answer to this question should be an emphatic ''yes''.

Also, take a look at the bathrooms: are they clean? Are the items on the menu seasonal? Did the servers come to the table promptly? If the answer to all of these questions is ''yes'' you've probaly discovered a good place to eat.
These are just some highlights from Robert's list. For the top 10 signs a restaurant is good (and to enjoy a good read), please visit his blog.
