BruniBetting: Tailor

New, 11 comments

Tomorrow, Frank Bruni reviews Tailor, Sam Mason's dessert thingamabob on Broome Street. Today, the Eater oddsmakers have set the action as follows:

Zero Stars: 6-1
One Star: 3-1 ??
Two Stars: 4-1
Three Stars: 750-1
Four Stars: 25,000-1
Sam Mason better be sending a bottle of Macallan 18 over to his colleagues at Harry Cipriani today. The only reason he knows for sure he's not getting steam rolled is because the Bruni doesn't roll the takedowns back-to-back. That's not to say that Tailor is deserving, but that in the absence of last week's violation of Harry Cipriani a zero star review is not something that Mason could completely rule out today. As for the rest of the action, two stars is the long shot for a variety of reasons, the most notable of which is that Platt's one star looms large. Rare is the high-profile verdict on which Platt and Bruni differ on star count. There's also the simple fact that ultimately Tailor isn't fully formed enough as a restaurant—and nowhere in its press materials is it even tagged as such (true)—to be classed at two stars. To borrow a phrase from the great Abbe Diaz, so, yah. Hipsters, do not be swayed by Mason's bad-ass cred: it's not going to get him the extra star. Our action is on a positive but not glowing one star review this week.
