Tomorrow, Frankie Two Stars revisits Village classic Blue Hill. Today, the Eater oddsmakers have set the action as follows:
Zero Stars: 10-1Blue Hill currently holds two stars from the Times, awarded in 2000 by Grimes, a gentleman who, quite unlike Bruni, actually understood the idea of a star system. Lately, the limited buzz for Dan Barber's haven for local organic ingredients has been excellent and in the 6 years it has been open its word-of-mouth rating has only improved. The timing here is also a factor, The Bruni having the chance to simultaneously give the restaurant an upgrade and provide some relative benchmark for his two star hand job from last week. Thusly, Eater is taking 4-1 on three stars.
One Star: 15-1
Two Stars: 3-1
Three Stars: 4-1
Four Stars: 8,000-1
