Hi,

Well, you'll obviously need some kind of database for the restaurants. The easiest way is probably to save them in a file as CSV ("comma 
separated values"). You can then use Ruby's CSV class from the standard library to process them:

http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-1.9.2/libdoc/csv/rdoc/CSV.html

Processing means going through each row and checking if the values match the search criteria.

You could also use a "real" database system like PostgreSQL. But that would take quite some time to learn.
