Bourdain Trail

Bourdain Trail

There really is no valid argument that Anthony Bourdain was not the world’s most travelled person. He travelled more than 200 days per year, and was only home in Manhattan about twice a week.  This is a weak attempt to catalog all the places he has been. If I win the lottery tomorrow and become a billionaire and live to be 100 I still won’t be able to visit all these places.  The best thing about this list is that they are all very attainable if you live in the USA.  He was not about fancy expensive restaurants you needed a reservation to get into.

This is just a fun attempt to list as many as I can so you too can gain some insight to Anthony Bourdain’s travels, hangouts, etc.  This is the short list to get you on the Bourdain Trail, and you can research more by searching hashtags like #bourdaintrail – just be sure to verify he was at these places and its not just a really low, lame attempt for business owners to patronize their  business, service or product. These below are certainly verified either thru his shows, books, interviews, Instagram, etc.
