The Payoff: Rayuela

Today, as expected, Frank Bruni awarded one star to Rayuela. Quite predictably, he found its broad geographic reach a drawback:

It’s a beautiful, fascinating, frustrating place, its cosmetic showiness echoed by dishes that are also all over the map, in terms of their appeal as well as their geographic and ethnic tethers, and in the way they throw ingredient upon ingredient and seasoning after seasoning at you. 

Both Eater and NYJ win $2 on our hypothetical $1 bets.

          Eater        NYJ
Bankroll $39.50   $36.67
Gain/Loss +2.00   +2.00
Total $41.50   $38.67
