On a fairly regular basis, I get e-mails from people who remember our old site, where you could view listings of restaurants by location as well as by type.
There are two ways on the current site to find restaurants in a particular area that we think are actually more valuable than the old way.
First of all, see the "search listings" link on the left-hand side of each page near the top. This is a little different from the regular search box, in that it only searches the restaurant listings. Then type in a location-related word. We try to include not only city names in the listings, but also words for sub-areas like Greystone or Edgewood.
A second option: If you're browsing in one of the type categories, you can click on the location link at the bottom of each listing. OK, you say, I know Dave's is in Homewood. What other pizza places are in Homewood? Click on the link at the bottom of the Dave's listing where it says "Birmingham Restaurants: Homewood" and it will pull up our other pizza listings in Homewood -- Devinci's and New York Pizza.
Hope this helps!
