I watch Anthony Bourdain No Reservations on the Travel Channel every week. I’ve got his books as well. On tonight’s episode, he returned to his old restaurant Les Halles to work a guest double on the sautee line, and convinced his friend Eric Ripert to join him, working the grill. I would have paid to have been dishwasher that night.
