The Payoff: Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill

Yesterday, Frank Bruni delivered two gift-wrapped stars to Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill.

Few of his ratings have surprised me more. The sushi and sashimi here “aren’t among the very best in town,” but “In terms of basic deliciousness, the fried chicken, made with matzo meal in the crunchy coating and seasoned with paprika and sansho pepper, may well be.”

Basic deliciousness? Is Restaurant Girl ghost-writing for the Times nowadays?

We were wrong once again. We lose $1 on our hypothetical bet, while Eater wins $3.

          Eater        NYJ
Bankroll $63.50   $79.67
Gain/Loss +3.00   –1.00
Total $65.50   $78.67
