I'm ready to go from Taco Bell to taqueria, from spaghettios to authentic Italian, from sweet-n-sour chicken to whatever is on that menu they never give me at the Chinese restaurant... I felt like an idiot the first time I went into an Indian restaurant. How do you know what to pick? What would you recommend a first-timer to try in your favorite cuisine? Assume I'm genuinely open to new tastes.
