Tejal Rao Tweaks Star System as Bloomberg's New Critic

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?
