Anthony Bourdain: NO RESERVATIONS
Bourdain, a veteran New York chef and author of the best-selling Kitchen Confidential, brings a refreshingly witty and irreverent sensibility to this new travel series, in which food becomes the key to understanding places and cultures. The first episode (tonight), Why the French Don’t Suck, takes him to Paris, where he visits the market neighborhood Les Halles, wanders the subterranean catacombs,, and investigates the mystique of absinthe. Bourdain makes an entertaining and insightful traveling companion, and the food looks delectable throughout, making this show best viewed on a full stomach!
