The power of Yelp

A new Mexican joint opened in Andersonville a couple months back, a farm-to-table restaurant called Cantina 1910. Some people love it, others HATE it. At least that’s the picture painted by the reviews on Yelp. So, how much power does a Yelp review have in this day and age? Could a few negative comments about a brand new restaurant kill the business before it even gets off the ground? Two journalists join us to discuss the present and future of online comments and reviews. Ashok Selvam is associate editor at Eater Chicago, and Will Flanagan is General Manager at Chicago Inno, a technology news site.
