Greg Cox of the News & Observer reviews 618 Bistro this Friday. How many stars will it receive? Frankly, folks, I wanted to like this restaurant, as it is next door to my office, but it is laughably bad. You may notice that I generally don’t write about restaurants I don’t like, as it’s really not what I do, so I wonder what Mr. Cox has to say.
If I had to set odds, I’d go with the following:
5 stars — 100,000 :1 (Hell, it could be 84 quadrillion to 1)
4 stars — 40:1
3 stars — 5:1
2 stars — 3:2
1 star — 6:1
What’s your bet?
Edit (February 26, 2010): Ouch. Greg Cox gave 618 Bistro a mere one star. I can’t remember the last time the N&O knocked a restaurant so badly, but honestly, that rating is very appropriate for this restaurant, which is a damn shame. If you bet a buck on a solo star, you’ve made a good investment. Which might be the only good investment you could make in this establishment.
