Maps for Chinatown and River North

I've plotted the restaurants in two neighborhoods on clickable maps. Each map shows a different icon depending on the price range. When you click on the icon a little window pops up showing the details and the link to the individual restaurant's page.

This uses the new Yahoo! Maps API as described here.

There are two maps currently available:

Chinese in Chinatown

Italian in River North

Added links to Chicago Health Department pages

Each restaurant now has a link to the pages at the Chicago Health Department that has inspection information for that restaurant.

Of course, almost all restaurants pass with flying colors, but that link is provided for your convenience.

Note however that in some cases the provided link may not result in the correct search results or any search results at all. In that case you may need to perform a search manually.
