The original Friday show is being re-run today. Interesting to see Mr. Bruni in person - he presents a reflective, measured persona that reminds me of President Obama. Answering one of the host's questions, he opined that NYC is clearly the best restaurant city in America and possibly the world. Both stressed that this is because of the aggregate melting pot identity of the five boroughs. Bruni added that the city lacks truly great Chinese and Middle Eastern cuisine, although he has no explanation other than, possibly, that the most talented cooks leaving those areas just never emigrated as far as NY.
