World famous food show host Anthony Bourdain has his eyes on the Bronx according to an interview with the Gothamist.
In the interview he acknowledges that the Bronx is generally overlooked (other than our beloved and real Little Italy Arthur Avenue):
The final episode of No Reservations featured Brooklyn. Could you ever picture a Parts Unknown episode that centers on New York City? I’m looking at the Bronx now. There’s been very little attention paid there. Other than Arthur Avenue there’s been very little attention paid to the Bronx as a borough. Queens is already pretty well acknowledged, at least, as a foodie paradise because of all the great Chinese and Korean places. That alone is enough to make it a kind of powerhouse of gastronomy.
And Brooklyn, you know, arguably we’re looking at the Brooklynization of the world at this point. Everywhere you go, whether you’re in Australia or England or Paris even, they’re referencing Brooklyn in some way. But the Bronx, I think that would be a really interesting challenge. A full hour in the Bronx really appeals to me.
Should Bourdain come to the Bronx then it is only logical that he teams up with our own, world famous and Emmy winning culinary ambassador – Baron Ambrosia.
For years the Baron has been showcasing not only the wonderful food that can be had in our borough but the culture that goes along with it. It is only fitting that Bourdain and the Baron go on a zany adventure through our borough.
What do you think? Do you like that Anthony Bourdain is interested in coming to the Bronx? Should he team up with Baron Ambrosia?
