Bruni's Fraiche Sounds

Another reason why Fraiche made Frank Bruni's 10 best new restaurants from coast to coast: Chef Jason Travi's decision to put an obscure Bjork track on the restaurant play list, one of the Frankster's "all-time favorite songs." Travi told the critic: "My goal with the play list is to have the older people not complain, and have the list obscure enough that people can’t sing along in the restaurant.” Mission accomplished. One Fraiche play list coming up, via Bruni's blog. Thoughts and comments welcome.
