Aureole Gets 29 From Zagat, Cafe Boulud to Reopen Wed.

BOTCH JOBS— Flor Fab reports that some of the ratings from this year's Zagat Guide (to be released on Wednesday) were leaked prematurely by mistake: "among were Monkey Bar (which got an 18 out of 30 for its food), Corton (27), Minetta Tavern (20) and the new Aureole (29, but with what Zagat calls an unreliably small vote)." [Diner's Journal]

UPPER EAST SIDE— The Feed learns that Cafe Boulud, which has been closed for a month and a half for renovations, will reopen on Wednesday. The restaurant has all new upholstery, fixtures and lighting, plus two new 14-seat private dining rooms. [The Feed]

MORE ON MICHELIN— The commenters have been airing grievances about the Michelin 2010 picks all day, but Mr. Cutlets has also weighed in. He commends the most of the picks—Alto, EMP, River Cafe—but wonders how on earth Gramercy Tavern and Rhong Tiam could have the same star rating. [TFB]
