Rolling the Dice: Ilili

Every week, we take our turn with Lady Luck on the BruniBetting odds as posted by Eater. Just for kicks, we track Eater’s bet too, and see who is better at guessing what the unpredictable Bruni will do. We track our sins with an imaginary $1 bet every week.

The Line: Tomorrow, Frank Bruni reviews the new big-box Lebanese restaurant with the palindromic name, Ilili. The Eater oddsmakers have set the action as follows (√√ denotes the Eater bet):

Zero Stars: 3-1
One Star: 2-1
Two Stars: 4-1 √√
Three Stars:
Four Stars: 25,000-1

The Skinny: We are riding a three-week losing streak, so we aren’t going to trot out any BruniTrends®. Let us simply say that, to us, Ilili felt like a one-star restaurant.

The Bet: We are betting that Frank Bruni will award one star to Ilili.
