This week, Anthony Bourdain takes No Reservations within spitting distance of home, having lunch with actor Bill Murray in the Hudson Valley. Here’s a clip.
He also gets a good taste of what he’s probably got in store from daughter Ariane in about 7 years…
Speaking of little girls, Bourdain shares in his blog a touching essay by crew member Todd Leibler’s daughter. Tony, before you know it, Ariane will be writing her own revealing school essays. If she’s got a fraction of your talent, her teachers are in for a treat — or a shock! There may be a few urgent parent-teacher conferences in your future.
Cape Cod Times did a great run-down on Bourdain’s appearance in Providence, RI, on January 23, and mentions that Cape Cod might be on the short list for NR Season 7. (UPDATE: This article also implies that the Bourdains have a dog. I was able to verify that it’s not true and Lupetto the cat still reigns supreme. Tony was probably speaking of pets in general, and the reporter misunderstood.)
On February 28, at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, Tony will square off with Eric Ripert in Death Match on the Beach: Battle Fish. From ingredients in a mystery basket, they’ll each try to prepare the best fish dish.
Sorry, Tony, my money’s on Eric to win.
Yet another wacko has tattooed himself with Bourdain — and Eric Ripert and Masaharu Morimoto.
Stellaa’s Blog gives Tony a lengthy kick in the pants. At first, I thought it was tough love, but she really does seem to hate the guy.
Here’s the most complete listing I’ve found on the ‘Net of Bourdain’s personal appearances.
