Bruni on Noma

shrimp-in-water-150.jpgEx-New York Times critic Frank Bruni, on what freaked him out at acclaimed Copehagen restaurant Noma: "At one point a server came to the table and set down a jar with two live shrimp it in. He said, 'you'll never taste a fresher shrimp in your life.' No shit, it's moving!...I just sat there for a few minutes. A server came over and said, 'it's going to die soon, it might as well die for it's intended purpose.' So finally, I ate one and bit down very hard right away." [Feast]
