The Eater Index, 10/4/07

This is the Eater Index, Eater's meta-ratings system for new restaurants. The number value of the Eater Index for any restaurant equals the average score it has received from up to 10 of the cities best critics, including one blogger and an additional wild card review, should it be needed. Scores are divided into three categories: green, for restaurants scoring 61 and above; yellow, for venues scoring between 40 and 60; and red, for those venues whose average score is 39 or less. Index scores in gray indicate that less than three reviews on the venue have been filed.

Color: Somewhat unexpectedly, Centro Vinoteca takes a real hit this week, dropping from 70 to a much less impressive 58. The Wakiya slide continues, of course, with the goose egg from Bruni and the slaughtering from Richman. It's previous total of 39 looks downright impressive compared to it new score of 32. Finally, we've got the debut of Accademia di Vino, a hair back from Wakiya, in fact, which comes onto the scene with a score of 31.
