    Big traveler my self and love going to the large markets in different parts of the world. How truly safe is it to eat some of the foods offered. I want to try all of it but worry that certain meats are not fresh.


    really enjoy the show!!

    Anthony has a habit of saying “come to daddy” for which I gotta say we all watching know who are daddy is but I cannot say the same thing about Anthony !!! …for someone who doesn’t know who his daddy is – he should be careful while talking on public tv

    Anthony Bourdain is a legend, he enjoys his food and beer…what more do you need in life…..and thank God no persistent signs of sissy women hanging on his coattails. By the way I went to the jave st market in Hong Kong da pa dong (sp) chef bobby…was amazing !

  8. Bourdame on March 4th, 2010 12:52 pm


    The use of the term “Come to Daddy” is an American expression that you should really seek a definition for before criticizing Anthony for it’s use. You obviously have no idea what it means and therefore you should be careful when posting such silliness.
    Love, love, love Anthony’s No Reservations!

    Hello Anthony.
    Beside everything I do beleive that from time to time you have a chance to read this newses. As a fact I m using internet to write to you from Poland – I know that from USA that is less than peanuts but believe me that we used to live here for more than 1000 years and from this persective I would be more than happy to have a chance to show you what polse used to eat – and this is your point of interest isnt it ?

    My daughter and I have eaten twice at Les Halles. Once in 2006 and once in 2008. We visit NYC from Minneapolis twice a year. Les Halles was dark and dirty. Built-up grime was easily seen everywhere. It was really a filthy place. I am not surprised that it has been closed for health code violations. On both occasions, our orders were screwed up, and the food arrived cold. But, hey, we love Bourdain! His show is the only reason I keep cable. And, he is a great writer. But, Les Halles? Burn the joint down!!

    We dined at Les Halles on 16 January 2011 and it was great. No problems… WTFO?

  15. Stevie Dalpe on March 16th, 2011 10:20 pm

    Food Network SUCKS!!! I use to love it and now its a manufactured bunch of crap. Bourdain speaks his mind its great no limit and no worries of offending anyone. I was out surfing in Lake Erie during his Cleveland episode I wish I would have known he was on the beach that whole time. I would have loved to met him. I thought it was just the local news crews

    I am a first year culinary student,And I just want to thank you Tony for your inspiration and pursuit of good food. When you are in top people will hate you, and love you. F****EM All! :)

    just looked at this site…agree with the guy in 2010…learn the difference between new and knew…don’t depend on spellcheck to check what you can’t spell…or perhaps you don’t really know the difference…like to, two, and too…..and hate the ‘me and him’….by this you have a good idea of the age of ‘new’ instead of ‘knew’ and my age who can’t understand why people can’t tell the difference and why so many people can’t speak correct English…

    You Mr Bourdain are a rude asshole

  19. Petr Cech on February 21st, 2012 9:05 pm

    Anthony Bourdain – my idol. Famous chef and traveler. Personality. I am watching his “NO RESERVATION’ many years. And I have a dream. Meet
    with him. Petr Cech, gastrochef, Czech republic.

    P.s. Thank you Anthony Bourdain. Thank you.
