As we've heard in many places before, Bruni just finds it...dull.
The chef Gordon Ramsay has a British television show called “The F Word,” an American television show called “Hell’s Kitchen” and, by all accounts and appearances, the kind of foul mouth and foul temper those titles suggest.
You might expect his debut New York restaurant to be brash and any of its shortcomings to be attributable to audacity, not timidity.
You’d be wrong.
The meta-reviewing (i.e. reviews of Bruni's review) is also in full swing, with Bloomberg, New York Magazine and Gothamist chiming in and pointing out that Bruni is echoing what has been said by just about anyone else who has offered an opinion on the restaurant.
And so, it looks like Gordon Ramsay's British invasion of America was more "Dave Clark Five" than "Beatles."
While we're on the topic of Frank Bruni...he also reviewed Top Chef, which runs its finale tonight. (Thanks for the tip on the TC review, Stacey!)
