Now there's a surprise! :wink:

As for the sedings, do you think it should have been higher or lower? Seeding this tournament was very difficult, due to the wide range of experiences that people have at restaurants on any given day. In the end, the voters will let us know who the top restaurants are.

I'm not sure the big money is going to be on ABC v. Le Cellier, however it probably has a better chance than the Noodle Station v. V&A.

Mama Melrose is not a mid-major and not a 12 seed. It should be a 9 at the lowest! The Sci-Fi should be the 12 seed at the highest. Better yet, send it to the NIT.

I found that a very disturbing seeding. Also...Tutto Italia...while expensive is not a 15 seed.

I love Olivia's because of the atmosphere and the wait staff...but it's slipped. It certainly is not a 5 seed.

What was used to seed these restaurants....dart boards?

:(

While I don't envy Eric's job of seeding all 64 restaurants...I am confused how an expensive restaurant like Tutto Italia is a #15 seed. We're trying it for the first time in Aug as part of "The Jabba the Hut Plan" (aka GET IN MY BELLY!)...so hopefully it's not truly a #15 seeded restaurant.

I agree with Matt...send Sci-Fi to the NIT...

Tony's...BLEH...disappointing and just average food.

Keep in mind, Will, that seeding is not only about expense. One of the tools I used to help determine seedings were online reviews found on various websites.

This is the first I'm seeing of this thread. I can't believe that either. A 12 seed!! I sense some upsets in the first and second rounds.

True, Eric. You did mention this on the podcast. I guess this means Tutto Italia isn't getting good reviews. Or enough good reviews. To be honest, I haven't really read too much about this restaurant except to know it's kinda expensive... So hopefully it won't live up to its #15 seed when we dine there in August! :D

Thanks, Eric! :(
