Dine somewhere else to-day and…

Dine somewhere else to-day and somewhere else to-morrow. I wish you to dine everywhere, said the editor to the writer at the New York Times in 1859. And thus began the tradition at that paper that continues with Frank Bruni today. A fascinating look not only at the way people used to dine, but also how they used to write. I'm glad the New York Times finally opened up their archives.

One thought on “Dine somewhere else to-day and…”

  1. I love this! The piece is written is in such a jaunty, jolly style–it makes you wish there were a little more character and color in more newspaper reporting now.
