Frank Bruni Calls Keith McNally a 'Horrible Man'
A horrible man?
"I do not go to Keith McNally restaurants anymore," quoth Frank Bruni. "I would have loved to have given Minetta Tavern a horrible review, because McNally is a horrible man."
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Bruni -- who actually gave Minetta Tavern three stars -- said this at a recent bookshop appearance promoting his memoir. It was in response to a question about his duty to remain objective even after Keith McNally called Bruni sexist when the critic gave the female-cheffed Morandi one star in 2007.
