But not to gloat, and not to coast, and I'm convinced that this venerated and venerable New York institution is doing some of both. I say that as someone who has loved it for a long time and wants to keep loving it but needs Luger to give me reasons: more consistent food than I've had there over the last few years, less dismissive service than I've encountered over the last few months. - Frank Bruni
