Anthony Bourdain's Coming to the Majestic
This just in: Chef, novelist (and Bone in the Throat is highly recommended) and TV-show host Anthony Bourdain's booked a gig at the city-run Majestic Theater in October, with tickets going on sale this Friday. The full release follows, but long story short: "Bourdain will spend the evening sharing candid and often hilarious insights about his life's work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience." Yes, please.
Ducats will run from $30 to $165, the latter a VIP offering including "premiere seating, an exclusive meet and greet session with Bourdain featuring hors d'oeuvres, a photo opportunity, a limited edition Anthony Bourdain tour poster and a limited edition tour VIP laminate." Good timing: The latest season of No Reservations bows tonight with a trip to Cuba.
CHEF, AUTHOR AND HOST OF THE TRAVEL CHANNEL'S NO RESERVATIONS, TO APPEAR AT MAJESTIC THEATRE ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27th!
Chef, author, and host of The Travel Channel's No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain, will visit the Majestic Theatre for one night only, Thursday, October 27th at 8:00pm. Bourdain will spend the evening sharing candid and often hilarious insights about his life's work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience.
Bourdain has been dubbed "the bad boy of cuisine" for his rock star look and blunt observations about the world of restaurants, chefs and cooking. Bourdain, the Chef-at-large at New York's famed bistro Les Halles, is the author of the bestselling Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, an upfront, hysterical, and sometimes shocking portrait of life in restaurant kitchens that has been translated into over 28 languages. His book, A Cook's Tour, published in conjunction with his series on the Food Network, was also a bestseller in the U.S. and the U.K. His newest best-seller, Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook, is a delectable journey that explores the changes in the subculture of chefs, cooks, the restaurant business and for Anthony himself since Kitchen Confidential.
A contributing authority for Food Arts Magazine, his work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times and Gourmet. He has also been profiled by CBS Sunday Morning and Nightline including an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. No Reservations, nominated for an Emmy and widely popular all over the world, is starting its ninth season July 11th.
