The new New York Times food critic has been announced: Frank Bruni. “We are thrilled to announce the new restaurant critic for The Times. He is Frank Bruni, our bureau chief in Rome.
Frank brings to the coverage of restaurant dining a true and longstanding passion; any close reader of his clips will see how often he tries to sneak food into his coverage of popes and presidents alike. A superb reporter and storyteller, a Pulitzer finalist, a war correspondent, and an accomplished feature writer, Frank started his journalism career in the early 1990’s with a stint as a film critic for The Detroit Free Press. And he retains a critic’s soul.”
