Frank Bruni, a bad newspaper columnist who is nevertheless employed as a columnist by America's most prominent newspaper, is obligated to write two columns per week. He has approximately zero good ideas per week. This is what causes things like Sunday's column to happen.

The NY Times used to include their own TV Guide with the Sunday paper. They listed the shows and movies with a short blurb summarizing the plot. Some were pretty funny.

OK.  It's kind of late to pile onto Bruni, but this is SO fucking typical.

A lot of us were eating live shrimp sashimi when Bruni was just a (distinguished) political reporter in Rome.

If he didn't know about that, fine:  he was a political reporter.

But how he was appointed one of the most powerful food writers on Earth remains a mystery.

The Times's disrespect of food culture remains notable.

I will continue to argue that the new loosening of the Restaurant Review column's author's brief is a belated corrective to this horrible insult.
