Bruni Takes Corner Bistro’s Burger Down a Notch


Frank Bruni finally joins the likes of Alan Richman and Steve Cuozzo in declaring the Corner Bistros burger highly overpraised: Mine was tender on the inside but had a dull flavor, and was flabby through and through, with no crispness whatsoever on the edges. Meanwhile, weve actually had this burger fall apart in our hands before clearly, consistency is not the places strong suit. Like Bruni, wed take a Shack burger over a Bistro burger any day, but in deflating the Bistros hype, did he really have to go and inflate the Shake Shacks even more?
