MRPR’s First Blogoversary!

by Ryan @ MRPR on November 10, 2010

I just released 15,000 balloons strapped to pigeons from my balcony in honor of MRPR’s first blogoversary!  Unfortunately, the balloons were filled with water and weighed the pigeons down.  They all drowned in Biscayne Bay and then, to make matters worse, a herd of manatees came by and got caught up in the balloons.  All of the manatees are dead.  Every last one.  But did I mention that MRPR is a year old???  Hooray!

Anyways, our very first post was published on November 10, 2009.  And what better way to celebrate a year of power rankings than a compilation of the 20 top ranked restaurants in Miami based upon an average of the 53 weekly power rankings that have been published.  Here it goes:

(Methodology: I assigned 20 points for every #1 rankings, 19 points for a #2 rankings, and so on down to 1 point for a #20 ranking.  In parentheses after each restaurant is their average weekly point value–for example, NAOE averages a 20 because it was #1 each week for the past year.  Also, a lot of these places opened during the year (or closed) so their average ranking suffers since they weren’t on the rankings all year.  I thought about not penalizing them for that but hey, longevity counts for something, right?)

1. NAOE (20.0)

2. Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink (19.0)

3. Red Light (18.0)

4. Buena Vista Bistro (16.21)

5. BLT Steak (14)

6. Hiro’s Yakko-San (13.74)

7. Sakaya Kitchen (12.19)

8. Bin No. 18 (11.19)

9. GastroPod (10.75)

10. Michy’s (10.38)

11. Eos (9.36)

12. Fratelli Lyon (8.34)

13. Bourbon Steak (7.89)

14. Sra. Martinez (7.06)

15. Pizzavolante (6.09)

16. Zuma (5.45)

17. Mandolin Aegean Bistro (3.89)

18. Azul (3.53)

19. Chowdown Grill (2.49)

20. Joe’s Stone Crab (2.19)

Was the sick story about drowning the pigeons and manatees supposed to be funny ? If so, you have a sick sense of humor. You should get someone that is normal write your jokes.

With disgust,

No, Paul. I think he was serious.
