Tucked away in his somewhat flamboyant* survey of the city's best room service offerings, The Bruni extends olive branches to both Jeffrey Chodorow, who has proclaimed himself Bruni's arch enemy, and Gordon Ramsay, who would also likely file himself under not a fan of Times chief restaurant critic. Of the room service at Hotel Gansevoort, which is provided by Chodorow's Ono:
...sesame-crusted tuna, requested rare, was cooked perfectly, and the wasabi béarnaise with it added the right notes of richness and heat. Roasted chicken was unusually tender.
