The Other Critics: Strange Timing

• Patrick Main visits Tory Row, which opened less than two weeks ago and gives it two stars. Maybe it would be better if you didn’t go in the first week? [Dig]

• Speaking of early reviews, Cheap Eats is at just-opened Cafe 47. It’s all about the pizza and the prices: that’s why waits are so long already. [Globe]

• In more weird timing, Mat Schaffer stops by Sportello, which has been open since 2008. The waiter’s attempts to upsell him on a bottle of wine seem to have knocked it down to a B+, but he loves the food. [Herald]

• Robert Nadeau gives two stars to Panza and warns that it’s good enough that it may well soon gain the inevitable North End line. Go while you can and don’t miss the seafood risotto. [Phoenix]

• Devra First finds the Cambridge Ten Tables worthy of two and a half stars. It’s not as good as the original yet, but it’s on the right track. [Globe]

• On The Cheap tries out Dorchester’s Poppa B’s. Everything fried is delicious and the service rocks. [Phoenix]
