Tomorrow, the Bruni mosies into Lonesome Dove for a good old fashioned Restaurants hoedown. Today, the Eater oddsmakers have set the action as follows:
Zero Stars: 3-1Without question, the potential exists for this review to get ugly right quick, certainly if Mr. Platt's take is a barometer of any kind. On the other hand, the Bruni Bruniblogged on Lonesome Dove in October and absolutely didn't hate on the restaurant. This, combined with the reasonable assumption that Bruni's visits were uneven but improved over time -- and that Tim Love's credentials will afford him the benefit of the doubt -- leads us to the conclusion that one star is the right bet.
One Star: 2-1
Two Stars: 8-1
Three Stars: 750-1
Four Stars: 15,000-1
