Sifton is from another planet (Tanoreen gets one star...where exactly did he eat?)

I had to agree with Sifton's one-star of Motorino. Maybe not the best pizza in NYC, but damn good and deserving of one star because of it...and because of the absence of a significant number of dishes other than pizza.

But, ONE STAR FOR TANOREEN? You've got to be kidding. The place that defined a new view of Middle Eastern (or, should I say Palestinian) cuisine in NYC. Fresh ingredients, inventive preparation...and Rawia Bishara, the queen of the night! Am I alone in believing that Mr. Sifton misses the point by cheating Tanoreen out of a second star?
