Next week, Tejal Rao will begin filing regular reviews in her new position as Bloomberg's New York City restaurant critic, and ahead of that she announces a revision to the publication's star system. She'll still rank restaurants on a four star scale, just like Ryan Sutton did before her, but a one star rating has been bumped up from "Fair" to "Good." So now the only truly bad rating a restaurant can get is a fat goose egg, which still means "Poor." As for the restaurants up for review, Rao promises to cover "Big flashy openings that demand attention, older established restaurants where there's been a change in the kitchen, but also places where the chef is not even a little bit famous and something interesting is going on." Any bets on what's up first?
