Compare and Contrast: MRPR versus Zagat

by Ryan @ MRPR on December 23, 2009

So I finally received my 2010 edition of Zagat for Miami/So. Florida in the mail today.  Let’s see how I did compared to the masses.  Below is a list of the current power rankings and in parentheses is the food rating for each place.

1. NAOE (Listed but not ranked)

2. Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink (26)

3. Red Light (26)

4. Buena Vista Bistro (Not listed, not ranked)

5. Bin No. 18 (22)

6. Fratelli Lyon (23)

7. Hiro’s Yakko-San (26)

8. Michy’s (27)

9. BLT Steak (24)

10. Bourbon Steak (25)

11. GastroPod (Not listed, not ranked)

12. Azul (27)

13. Pizzavolante (Listed but not ranked)

14. Sra. Martinez (24)

15. Oishi Thai (25)

16. Mandolin Aegean Bistro (Not listed, not ranked)

17. Joe’s Stone Crab (27)

18. Metro Bistro Cafe (Not listed, not ranked)

19. Sardinia (23)

20. OLA (27)

On the Bubble: Pacific Time (24); Eos (Listed but not ranked); Cafe Sambal (23).

Not too bad.  I undervalue some of the celebrity chefs (Michelle Bernstein, Douglas Rodriguez) and I omit a few of the top scorers either because I haven’t been (Palme d’Or, Romeo’s Cafe, Francesco, Adriana) or because I think they’re overhyped (Scarpetta) or sometimes both (Gotham Steak, Mr. Chow, Phillipe, Hakkasan).  Eventually I’ll get to these places but some are higher on my “to do” list than others.
