Tomorrow, Sam Sifton reviews the West Village’s casual seafooder, Choptank. The Eater oddsmakers have set the action as follows: Goose Egg: 50–1; One Star: 2–1; Two Stars: 3–1; Three Stars: 500–1; Four Stars: 25,000–1
While we loved Choptank for what it is, it struck us as fundamentally a one-star concept—in the good sense of that term. Sifton has been less inclined than his predecessor to toss out two-star ratings like candy bars. We therefore have little hesitation in predicting a positive one star for Choptank.
