I've discussed several times with Schwizza the frustrations of Sam Sifton's rating criteria, and the disappointment with The Breslin only getting 1 star (as well as The Spotted Pig before it from Frank Bruni because of the stools). And so the review of the John Dory Oyster Bar seemed a forgone conclusion.
But ho! What's this?! 2 Stars!!!
Way to kill it Schwizza!
