Looking for a recommendation? Try This leverages user contributed questions and answers to offer recommendations. Try This reminds me of a cross between Digg and Yahoo Answers as it offers community recommendations by leveraging a question and answer format.
With Try This users can ask a question like, "Where can I get good sushi in Arlington, Virginia?" and the community make suggestions. Users can comment on the item. The community can also vote on the items they like. Users can also search for items in the community - I searched for "music" below.
Try This offers social features that allow users to interact with the rest of the community. Upon setting up a profile users can create a visual representation of items you would recommend others to try (which is fitting with its name). Another social feature is the Try This Facebook application.
DemoGirl offers a great demo of Try This. Though a simple approach, the Try This ease of use and unique twist on a recommendations may give it a chance against a crowded field of typical recommendation and Q&A sites.
