Toronto Life's Star Ratings

chef223 | Aug 16, 2007 06:03 PM

Don't know if anyone knows , but Toronto Life has completly changed it's restaurant star rating system. A lot of previously 4 stars are now 3 and 3 and half star restaurants. The explanation is that the stars now have a different meaning, and it doesn't really change the quality of the restaurant. For a pro cook myself I feel that the star system is important for the chefs, as far as buisness goes, and I don't understand really how the restaurants are rated. For example a restaurant like Didier was a 3 and half star restaurant and now is a 2 and a half star restaurant. According to Toronto Life that rating is the same , but looking at the stars it can have a negative affect on certain restaurants. Lee is a two star restaurant, Perigee 3 star, IL Mulino 2 star, I mean that's pretty brutal. I don't want to name names but some restaurants are way underrated and some way overrated.Thoughts everyone??
