Zagat Changes Scoring System in 2017 New York Guide

When Zagat’s New York Guidebook is published tomorrow, two things will be different: it will have a brighter cover, and the rating system will have changed. For more than 35 years, restaurants were graded on a scale from 1 to 30. However, starting tomorrow restaurants will be graded on a scale that runs from 1 to 5 and includes decimals. The spokeswoman for Zagat – now owned by Google – said that this change was made to make the system simpler to understand. What has not changed in the Zagat guide is the top rated restaurant; for the sixth year in a row, Le Bernadin will hold the top spot in the rankings with a 4.9 score.
