After a five-year stint as the newspaper's critic, Frank Bruni will step down in August. The upcoming publication of his food memoir prompted the move:
Recognizing that the book is certain to seriously compromise his ability to be a spy in the land of food, Frank picked this as a natural time to move on. He will be turning in his restaurant-critic credentials when his memoir, Born Round: the Secret History of a Full-Time Eater, is published in late August.
Bruni will become a writer at large for the New York Times Magazine, pursuing food and non-food stories.
