New Jersey to Honor the Late Anthony Bourdain with Food Trail

“I learned something here today — Jersey cheesesteaks… I’m not saying they’re better than Philadelphia. Yeah, I am actually, so there.” – Anthony Bourdain

New Jersey plans to memorialize Anthony Bourdain — NJ native, world renown chef, author, television personality and explorer — with a 10-stop food trail.

A resolution signed by NJ lawmakers would designate the restaurants featured in a 2015 episode of CNN’s “Parts Unknown” as the “Anthony Bourdain Food Trail.”

“A designated trail of Bourdain’s favorite dining spots is a fitting way to honor the memory of one of New Jersey’s best known chefs,” said Assemblywoman Carol Murphy (D-Burlington). “Even after international fame, he never forgot his Jersey roots. Each episode, Bourdain brought his homegrown wit, charm and sense of humanity to his viewers. He became a New Jersey food icon.”

The list of restaurants that will be featured on the Food Trail are below. Why not stop by a few this week and see what all the hype is about!
