November 24, 2009 Power Rankings

by Ryan @ MRPR on November 24, 2009

The top five remains the same this week and I’ve corrected an oversight (Azul).  I thought there was another oversight that needed correcting, Eos at The Viceroy Hotel at Icon Brickell (a restaurant in a hotel in a condo, phew).  But then I went back there for dinner Wednesday night and was, unfortunately, underwhelmed.  Everything was overly salty (especially the mushrooms with bone marrow, usually a favorite).  And the dish that I rank as one of my favorites in all of Miami, Lobster and Sea Urchin Risotto, wasn’t hitting on all cylinders.  The pieces of lobster were not meaty and overall the dish wasn’t as rich as it used to be.  I’ll certainly give it another shot but it didn’t break into the rankings this week.  Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
