Default fun game for choosing restaurants (in the u.s.)

Fun game. You know they have *millions* (I exaggerate) of restaurants in New York City, of just about every kind of cuisine in the world. My friend and I were overwhelmed with choices, so we decided to do the equivalent of spinning the globe and stopping it with your finger and going to that country: we called up 1-800-Free411 and did a category search for "restaurants" in New York City. We could have narrowed it down a bit with landmarks or street information, but we decided on "search all." You could almost hear the search database whirring around with *millions* (again, exaggeration) of choices before it spat one out at us: Cara Mia, in the Theater District on Ninth Avenue. Now, I don't know how or why that place was chosen as the first of *millions* of results, but I must say it was some good Italian food.
