Meanwhile on the Bruniblog

2008_08_alloro.jpgA riled up Bruni offers up his first impression on UES newcomer, and Steve Cuozzo favorite, Alloro, and it's not very pretty: "The spaghetti itself...didn’t yield to utensils in any usual fashion. You had to wield your knife or fork as if it were a chisel...One of our entrees was lavender-crusted swordfish, which answered the question of what you’d encounter in a L’Occitane store if it suddenly decided to sell a line of seafood right next to the candles...The lavender presence was that sharp, that disconcerting."
