Are the hordes of strangers with questionable taste on online review sites really the best way to find good food? How about a restaurant recommendation from someone you know you can trust?

Makers of the app ChefsFeed (free; iOS and Android) asked top-tier local chefs where they like to eat (and, just as importantly, what they like to order) to create its foodie directory.

The app also goes in-depth with videos and stories about the restaurant business, so when you get to your dinner spot, you can feel almost as savvy as the expert who sent you there.
