Restaurant Review Prognostication

Let’s start something really silly for the area.  Each week, the News & Observer tells us in its Wednesday edition what restaurant will be reviewed on the following Friday.  Greg Cox’s review of Durham’s Guglhupf will be published on Friday, and it’s time for us to guess how many stars he’ll give it.

As you know, the N&O has a 5 star system, and only the best of the best get all 5 stars.

So, how many stars will Guglhupf get???


Edit (Feb. 19, 2010) —  Guglhupf received 4 stars from Greg Cox, making it the highest ranked German/Eastern European restaurant in the Triangle, surpassing J. Betski’s.  Wow.   Congratulations to Drew and Smily, who nailed it.  You have the admiration and respect of the Greater Triangle Blogosphere, but alas, no tangible prizes are coming your way.

  1. Dave says:

    3 1/2. The menu looks good, and if executed well, merits that. As a caveat, the only thing I’ve eaten from guglhupf was a stollen for christmas. but 3-3 1/2 feels right

  2. Chops says:

    We know he loves Guglhuph and German food, so he may go as high as 4 stars. I will stick with Dave and say 3 1/2 stars.

  3. Varmint says:

    He gave J. Betski’s 3 1/2 stars, for what it’s worth.

  4. Michael says:

    3 stars. It’s decent but not decadent.

  5. Smily says:

    4 stars. He had it highly ranked toward the end of the year on one of his other lists. The desserts are worth 4 stars there by themselves.

  6. Varmint says:

    I’m setting the over-under at 3.75 stars.

  7. fullsteam says:

    3.14 stars. I like pie.

  8. The Gourmez says:

    I’ll go with 3 stars. It’s great food but besides dessert, it doesn’t have a wow factor.

  9. Anonymous says:

    I like π, too, but I say he gives it 4.

  10. creampuff says:

    I’m feeling 3 1/2 stars. I’ve had lunch there a few times, and it just feels right to me.

    Oops! Guess it’s Saturday already. Haven’t seen the Friday review yet. Really must keep up better!
