Frank Bruni's Face Revealed

Maintaining anonymity in today's wired world is quite a tall order. Yet somehow, most readers of The New York Times Dining section probably wouldn't be able to describe the appearance of the paper's most famous restaurant critic, Frank Bruni. Those days have now passed. An interview in Publishers Weekly with Bruni promoting his new book is accompanied by a photo of him. As the food blog world reels, some are saying that the photo confirms that Bruni is done with restaurant criticism. Others say everyone in the New York food scene already knew what Bruni looked like anyway.
