Frank Bruni: ‘Keith McNally is a Horrible Man’

Frank Bruni’s publicity tour continues to yield gems! From a Q&A last night in San Francisco:

I do not go to Keith McNally restaurants anymore … I would have loved to have given Minetta Tavern a horrible review, because McNally is a horrible man.

To be fair, McNally seems to enjoy feuding with critics, and once called Bruni “unremittingly sexist.”

The best thing about restaurant world beefing is the potential for puns. We deem this beef “well done.”
