Simple Problem

Hello There,

I have a minor problem that is driving me a bit crazy and was hoping
maybe someone can see something I'm not...

In my view I have the following code:

<p align=center>
<b>Choose A Cuisine:</b>
<%= collection_select(:restaurant, :cuisine_id , @cuisine, :id, :name,
:prompt => 'Any') %>
</p>

Now I am trying to access the selected value in my controller with the
following code:

@cuisineID = params[:restaurant_cuisine_id]

Unfortunately @cuisineID always comes back NIL for some reason. When I
check the development log I see that the param is actually being set
properly:

  Parameters: {"restaurant"=>{"cuisine_id"=>"8"}, "search"=>"110 ros
valley rd, Toronto, On, Canada", "action"=>"index", "....)

If it helps, my view is for an index action and so there is no
restaurant variable to set in the page. The drop down is part of a
search.

Thanks,

Steve

it's:
params[:restaurant][:cuisine_id]
