Yelp just released its Top 10 Restaurants of 2010 list and Kuma's Corner took the top spot. The list, compiled by a combination of average star rating, total review count, total checkins and how many Yelpers bookmarked the business during the year, meshes with the trend that people were still dining out, but wanted to spend less.
The majority of the list comprises lesser-expensive places that still churn out quality grub. Most of the restaurants either serve well-priced small plates (Purple Pig, Girl & The Goat) or have delicious food that won't break the bank (Big Star, XOCO, Crisp).
The only place on the list that really has more-expensive entree items is The Publican, but the quality of the mussels and pork chef Brian Huston is putting out is clearly a draw.
