In 2004, Tanoreen got a rave review from Eric Asimov in $25 & Under (those were the days when that column reviewed real restaurants). Recently, it moved to a bigger space. It now has a bar and takes reservations.
We haven’t been to Tanoreen, but it strikes us as the quintessential outer-borough one-star place—at least according to the grading curve Sifton has adopted since he took over from Frank Bruni last fall.
So we will bet on one star for Tanoreen.
