    I was not there but what I got from the little snipet of the video is that, in front of an audience you become a comedian. But from many of your travels, you are humble and shy. That would be the core of you and that is why I like it! Mary

    Dear Mr. Bourdain,
    When are you going to do a segment in El Paso, Tx on mexican food. We have some very good authentic
    mexican food, that I think would impress you. Our
    business, the L&J Cafe is 81 years old and three generations strong. I hope that you will visit El Paso, Tx. and stop by the L & J Cafe (The Old Place by the Graveyard) in the near future.

    Just to say that Tony is the spit of my obviously fraternal twin brother David face and personality. We are 52 years of age, Canadian from Ontaio and foodies and winos by nature and by culture. Tony- you make us laugh!!! (Paris trip was the funniest)You are real, human and unpretentious in a world of showbiz selfobsessed chefs. (Gordon Ramsey and Mario Batali are also excused in this description of course!)Keep it up-keep finding the real food of the big bad world!!!You are real and super cool!! Yours, Eleanor and David

    Hello Anthony,
    I just saw you episode about Beirut and it touched me deeply. My boyfriend and I have been watching your programs and we really like the way you deal and talk about everything.
    In this episode, when you were already on the ship, you said that you were going back to your family, job, friends but those people were leaving all that behind. I saw myself 3 years ago, doing something I would’ve never dreamt of doing just to get out of my country: Cuba. I was in that same situation: leaving behind everything I knew, family, dear friends, the city where I was born, my world. Without knowing when I was going to come back. With the clothes I had on and nothing else. We were not at war but it was, and it still is, a difficult life that makes you take tough decisions.
    I like the way you see beyond, you reach to people and not just “do your job”. I like how you said all this traveling and meeting so many different people has changed your life.
    I can’t wait to see No Reservations in Cuba. And if you ever need someone to show you around, I’ll be more than happy to help. I had the opportunity to know a lot of beautiful places in the island, beautiful people, I am in love with the countryside (btw, GREAT food in private houses), and I think you will be blown out with Cuba (don’t know if I said it correctly).
    So thanks for your amazing program.
    (I now live here in the US. If you need to know something about Cuba, this is my email:

    I recently watched your episode in Osaka, Japan. I love your show, mostly because I also love travel and good food. Osaka has been my favorite place for both, for the last 30 years. I agree that Osaka is where you truly find the heart of the Japanese. I lived there for 5 years and my wife is a Hanshin Tigers fanatic (she’s now become a big fan of “NO RESERVATIONS”, too). That episode was one of your best, filmed mostly in the Minami District, but you barely scratched the surface. There is so much more you should see and taste in Osaka and the Kansai area of Japan, even you’d be surprised. If you ever go there again, I’d love to meet up & show you so much more that you wouldn’t believe.
    Thanks, Jim

    Hello Anthony!

    How about Finland when you are planning your next trip. I´ll buy you a meatpie at the market place. We also have other excellent foods (dispate one small Italian Berluscone comments) and we don´t spit in to glass.

    Keep on making good programs.

    Best Regards

    Since I am sure someone is reading this, and I have no other way to contact you, having lost your card in one of the usual fits of disorganization, I am reaching out in an obviously inappropriate location.
    In ongoing concern about the idiotic CA foie ban I have “borrowed” an image from the exceptional “No reservations” piece you did to illustrate a point of science in an otherwise over emotional battle. The piece is here – if this is not acceptable, please let me know rather than sending out scary suits with briefcases.
    Thank you…. Jo Lynne Lockley (scooter, reservations at Gary Danko’s, foie gras T shirt).

    I don’t care what you do or say ordinarily, but your current TV advertisement referring to “chessy tour guides” on packaged tours is insulting to folks who make their living by giving tourists a brief idea of place and time and who actually study in many cases and are licensed by their country to provide such a service.

    And, it’s also insulting to those of us who take such trips because we all don’t make a living doing it and don’t have the time and unrestricted funds provided by a TV channel paying our way!

    Try to be more kind rather than sounding like the proverbial “ugly American!”

    Disappointed in you,

    Nancy Monson

    Love your show and your wit but I have noticed that you have never step foot in Israel. Of course it was stolen from the Palestinians the same way the USA was built on the natives in whose languages are so many states and towns.

    Anthony has gone to Lebanon (2x!) and is going to Libya and Morocco, very USA friendly I know.

    But no Israel, I wonder why…. hmmmm
