  • Marlowe's burger seems to have helped make it a late addition to the 2010 Top 100. Or the first addition to 2011.
Believe us, we know all about the urge to engineer a do-over for something that, weeks after publishing, we've reconsidered. When it comes to last month's Chronicle Top 100, it looks as if restaurant critic Michael Bauer has pulled off a back-door revision ― by addition. Today we noticed an update to the Chron list:
While the next Top 100 won't be published until next April, I want to keep you updated on new, interesting places that will likely make next year's list. These have been recently reviewed. Click on the name to find the review: Marlowe, S.F.

Say what? While it seems that Marlowe is the list's de facto post-facto101st entry, Mr. Bauer's note suggests the restaurant is actually the first new addition to next year's list. Although, either to keep some small remnant of suspense, or as a kind of warning to Marlowe that, tasty burger or not, they haven't exactly been canonized. Not yet.

That leaves us with a question. If, say, Commis put a burger on the menu, could it, too, sneak onto 2011's pre-list?
