En Route Magazine Best New Restaurant odds
Katerine-Lune Rollet has written up what she thinks are the five best new restaurants in Montreal. Here:
As En Route magazine's best new Canadian restaurants issue has been averaging two to three Montreal restaurants for the past couple of years, I figure that from Ms. Rollet's list only Maison publique makes it in November (the month the issue comes out). After all there probably is at least one, if not two new restaurants that haven't opened yet that will make the list.
I'd give Projet 67 +150
and Maison publique -400
Then as instigator of this thread. The rules are after you've eaten at a restaurant mentioned in the 2013 openings feel free to post here what you think the odds are it makes it into En Route's November issue.
If anybody really wants to make cash money bets, you do so at your own risk.
I would say Maison publique is more like +100. I don't think it deserves to be on the list, but might make it anyway because its such an easy write up. Went there last weekend and was a little disapointed with the food, nice atmosphere and people though
park +800, it is a good sushi option in montreal (actually probably the best I've had in Montreal), but I think this is more reflective overall poor sushi here rather than some new, creative resto that deserves to be on the national spotlight
really want to try mezcla and hotel herman soon
Stefano Faita's new restaurant -300
And to those who don't bet on Football:
25% chance of getting onto the list = +300
50% chance of getting onto the list = +100
75% chance of getting onto the list = -300
Or in other words, the smaller the number, the better the chances. The larger the number, the less likely it will happen.
