Frank Bruni exchanged his job as restaurant critic for the opinion page at the New York Times, and I've really come to like his style and observations. But today he couldn't help himself and took down a too pretentious restaurant in New York.
I was thinking of Serious Eats as I was reading what he had to say. Most of us seem to like to explore the new and exotic, but I don't think anybody here succumbs to this level of absurdity.
Enjoy the read, and I'd love to know what you think of it. If my link won't take you there, the title of the column is Dinner and Derangement, and you can reach it through google. Or today you'll find it listed in opinion at the top of NYTimes.com
