Now I’m up for a good rant as much as the next guy. But something is off. Since when is a rant an article? Op Ed piece, sure, bring it on. But front page news in the Dining Out section of the New York Times?
In today’s NYT, Bruni takes on “restaurantspeak” as patronizing and obnoxious. (What would we do without Orwell's 1984 to guide us in newspeak?) No real argument there.
But is it newsworthy?
I think his wry observations might have been better placed on his Diner’s Journal blog rather than as an actual article.
I'm not ranting, just saying.
Still, have a read. If you dine out often you’ll recognize your evening out.
