Dining Critic Frank Bruni Retires From Reviewing Restaurants

Last week on Talk of the Nation, NPR's Linda Wertheimer spoke with Frank Bruni, restaurant critic for The New York Times, about his new memoir, Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-time Eater.

After five years, Bruni hung up his critic's cap. (Sam Sifton, whom NPR's Jack Zahora profiled for Morning Edition, is the newspaper's new restaurant reviewer.) In his last column, which The Times printed today, Bruni answered some of the questions he's been asked over the last five years:

What's the best sushi place? What about the best steakhouse? Is there any best, safest way to navigate a menu?

Bruni has a new gig with The Times, as a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine.
