The diners of New York been afraid to say it until now, but it looks like NYT restaurant critic Frank Bruni has the big lemony balls. From his three star review of Bouley today:

The pairing of citrus dressing with a seafood carpaccio (scallops, in this case) is a tired, uninspired concept.

Thank the baby Jesus. Let us end this holocaust of citrus on seafood! In the bazillion years since Moorish slaves of Spain in South America first put lime to raw fish, have we not suffered enough?

According to a NYC Health Department inspection on May 3rd, there is "Evidence of mice or live mice present in facility" at Bouley. Maybe the cooking would be a little more exciting if they squirted a little citrus on those critters?
