This should be ... interesting. Next Wednesday, ABC News' "Nightline" will air an interview with outgoing New York Times restaurant critic Frank Bruni, who is hawking his autobiography, "Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater."
The "secret", in case you missed Bruni's piece in the NYT Sunday Magazine in July, is that the man had some disturbing food issues growing up -- bulimia, bingeing, laxatives, amphetamines. Though, in the magazine piece and in an excerpt from the interview, Bruni takes a light, almost humorous approach with the subject.
Of course, Bruni and ABC's John Berman also get into his job as the nation's most influential restaurant critic ("I don't walk in there with the desire to intimidate people. It kind of bums me out to hear that. I'm really just there, really to have a good time"), his pet peeves ("I hate that common phrase in a restaurant, you know, are you done working on that?) and more.
The interview airs at 10:35 p.m. Wednesday.
