Every Reservation

12:30am: I'm standing in the taco truck framing up the bar's door expecting Bourdain to walk out and wander up to the window. I can hear him on the wireless. Exits, immediately drunken fan stumbles into frame and asks if she can smell him.

This "week in the life" of Anthony Bourdain's cameraman is a little too technical to be described as "fun," but it does reassure you that sitting at a desk is a fine career choice. Or the opposite. Here's a favorite recent episode of No Reservations.

I want to believe that Anthony Bourdain smells like fresh herbs, leather, and exotic musk but he probably just smells like cigarettes. Good idea though, drunken fan!

@Yahtzii He actually quit smoking, so MAYBE HE DOES.


@Heat Signature I'm pretty sure he will ALWAYS smell like cigarettes. It's just the kind of guy he is.


@Yahtzii He can smell like whatever he wants as long as he doesn't mind me hiding inside the bathtub in his hotel room.


Thank you so much!@a

This article would be much better if it was just a series of photos of Anthony Bourdain.

For ample evidence that Anthony Bourdain is THE WORST EVER, please refer to Julie Klausner's podcast.

I bet he makes non-traditional sausage.


@Reginal T. Squirge He's the sort of dude who would make a rape joke then get mad at you for trying to censor him when you told him to stop. He would definitely complain about how Jon Stewart just isn't as ANGRY as Bill Hicks. I guarantee that at least once, he's sincerely complained about a woman being "on the rag," and then made real deliberate eye contact to see whether they got mad at him.

Not to mention those stupid fucking tats.

To paraphrase Ms. Klausner, he's the kind of dude who's always like, "Oooh, look how edgy I am!" even though nothing he rants about is even slightly out of step with the views of 99% of the straight, white male population. Like how he's always talking about wanting to punch Dick Cheney or whatever.


@Reginal T. Squirge "I hate vegetarians!" Really? You do? Just like EVERY OTHER ELDERLY WHITE MALE?


@Reginal T. Squirge @deepomega

He seems like the kind of guy who memorized Dennis Leary's "Asshole" song.

(I'm taking my non-traditional sausages and going home.)


@Reginal T. Squirge Yuuuup

Reginal T. Squirge

LOL. All the Hairpin Dudes hate his guts.


@Reginal T. Squirge Not all.


Lest we forget, Julie introduced similar sentiments here but two short years ago.


@melis As ever, Julie and Natasha make my tepid zings whither and rot. Miss u 4ever, FMK.


@deepomega et al. --Love youse guys for these comments.

Hah I knew that was King Pin when I saw that picture!


@Creature Cheeseman I thought it was 45 Tchoup, but I should have known there was too much room on the sidewalk!


Taceaux Loceaux may have a horrible name, but those tacos sure are good.

I kind of like that Bourdain "thinks lateness reflects poorly on people"


No matter what I read about him, he has some undefineable quality that makes me like him.

I feel the same way about John Mayer, so I guess that's a little bit about me.

Heat Signature

@orangeyouglad I'm a little embarassed to admit that I really like the new John Mayer song, "Queen of California".


@Heat Signature I...like it, too.

This is the safe space to admit that.


@Peanut I sure hope so. I like it too. I also confess that Jack Johnson's music does not make me run screaming out of the room. So.


Leah Chase rules. I'm sad they didn't get a shot of Hubig's Pies, which just burnt down. :( but the rest of those choices are solid. Yay, Nola!
