In Portugal last month I had the most amazing sandwiches I've ever had in my life because Tony featured them on his shows.

:thumbsup:

Such a badge of honor for any restaurant or cuisine to have his endorsement.

He's given multiple interviews about how careful he had to be with some places that were lovely local places that he didn't want to ruin. Sometimes he doesn't name places specifically because he doesn't want them overrun by tourists. His recommendation means a lot to so many people.

The burgers are fine, but the fries sure do suck.

I recommend The Habit when in LA.

Funny, we went to In-and-Out last month and had two totally different piles of fries. My wife's were long and soggy; mine were all the broken half pieces but were perfectly crispy.

Went to Takashi tonight. I'd never been before but was first introduced to it by Bourdain. He featured it on one of his shows and we've been meaning to check it out for years. We even tried once before but couldn't get a table.

Tonight I was with my wife and one of my oldest and dearest friends. We ate until we couldn't eat anymore. We drank. We toasted to Tony and we laughed.

What an amazing, unforgettable night. The kind of night New York City is made of.

It really helped to be surrounded by good food and great friends. I even got my good friend to try sweetbreads, which is one of my favorite foods, but she wasn't into. They ended up being one of her favorite things we ate. It felt very much in the whole spirit of what Bourdain was all about and tried to communicate to his audiences. God, it felt good.

Then we went to this cocktail bar after and my wife ended up knowing a dude there who got us a table in the back (even though the place was packed) and he hooked us up. It was so fucking great. I really needed it. Felt cathartic and energizing to be around such loving and amazing people who love food and just wanted to connect and laugh.

Good shit. Tony was the man.

Yes! I listened to his Maron episode the other day, too. And Fresh Air replayed an interview with him from like 2016? Something like that. But I loved hearing him and Maron trade stories and histories. Those two really do seem like kindred spirits.

Anthony Bourdain Never Stopped Advocating for the People He Believed In

Quote:
“Without Anthony, I very much doubt if Takashi restaurant would still be around today,” says Saheem Ali, the owner of the offal-centric West Village restaurant that he opened with the late chef Takashi Inoue when both were first-time restaurateurs. “People still come in and order exactly what he ate on that episode of The Layover,” Ali adds. “In life and death, we are indebted to Anthony, and honor both his and Takashi’s spirits by maintaining the legacy of the restaurant they created and elevated.”

Somehow I missed the L.A. Koreatown episode from Season 1 of Parts Unknown.

:shock:

I didn't really engage with this thread the last couple weeks, so apologies if I'm being redundant...

But his 2016 Fresh Air interview is back up, and it's excellent. Hearing him talk about the joy making the pancake bar for his daughter and her friends was brutal.

I’m about to watch the new Mardi Gras episode that aired last night.

I need to read Kitchen Confidential again too.
