JSON Advice

I have a simple C# / .Net project that parses a .json file. It parses and displays the most popular pizzas in a DataGridView. My question pertains to .json parsing.

There is more than one way to approach the problem. I used the JavaScriptSerializer and LINQ. One could use dictionaries, JSON.Net or even something like these:

An XML approach:

http://www.thinqlinq.com/Post.aspx/Title/JSON-Literals-for-VB?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+thinqlinq%2Frss+%28Thinq+Linq%29

Is my project in its current state the recommended approach / accepted approach?

I tried to attach the .json file and .Net project (WinForms for simplicity) in .zip but this site would not allow it. Contact me for source.

Thanks

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I need to rephrase the question as it has not gotten any response, etc. I will have to provide some snippets vs. files and a more clear request regarding result.

This link shows the results of testing against JSON Parsing libraries
http://sagistech.blogspot.com.au/2010/03/parsing-twitter-json-comparing-c.html

It is worth noting that in the tests he performed the File size was 285Mb, containing 208,530 entries. For the JSON file you have attached you will not notice any real difference between the different techniques.

If you want to know about JSON.Net have a look at this page

Referenced a nice article on JSON parsing performance which would clearly influence architectural decisions.
