Every local restaurant I have ever submitted but one has been denied & I have listed awards, etc (sold it to the reviewer) but they have still been denied. None were part of a chain. We need better clarification on this. It’s a place where someone is going to meet up with friends or family & they are ALWAYS accessible. None are private & I assume that a POI will only improve business. A better clarification on what does/does not meet criteria is desperately needed. They are great gathering places. I’m always on my phone every time I go to local restaurants. A POI at the unique ones would be helpful not only to myself but I assume to every community in the world. A bar can be seen in the same light as a restaurant because people mainly gather to be social with one another. Do unique local restaurants that are great gathering places meet criteria or not?
