The Bruni Digest

In which I sit on a dirt mound somewhere in Brooklyn with my ears pricked, waiting for New York Times head restaurant critic Frank Bruni, who I imagine to be a Venetian count in a huge ruffled collar, to dole out stars from the inside breast pocket of his brocaded chamber robe. This blog is predicated on the suggestion that every Wednesday, in the Times Dining Out section, Frank lays a huge faberge egg of hilarity.

I am fiscally irresponsible, which means I have weak bones and a dorsal fin. And a penchant for dining out, even though I am, in the words of many rich people, a "poor people". I make a different face when speaking each of the foreign languages in which I am shittily proficient.

So did I.

While the whole Oedipal thread in this week's twofer Mexican review is a pretty tempting target, I would still respect you if you decided to take a pass this week. Bruni just wasn't all that mockable, and the world is a few degrees colder as a result.

Feel free to riff again on random pics of cute baby animals or something. (I was in tears by the end of that one.)

PS: Can we all agree that Bruni has been scared off of reviewing serious (i.e., potential 3-4 star) restaurants? I mean, I'm not a New Yorker, but, when was the last time the Times reviewed Jean-Georges -- wasn't it back in, like, the Street Fighter II era? Family drama aside, why do we care enough about these two, seemingly fairly standard, one-star and no-star Mexican joints to spend a main page review on them?
