Tony Bourdain in San Francisco

According to Leah Garchik's column in today's San Francisco Chronicle "Chef/international foodie Anthony Bourdain will be shooting in San Francisco this week for his Travel Channel show, "No Reservations."
Has anyone seen him? Maybe we can post our Tony sighting here? I probably would faint...

  1. I would LOVE to know where he is! I love his shows!

    1. More interestingly, what restaurant is he covering? Where would you recommend he go?

      I'd send him to the mission for tripas and cabeza.

      1. I think he might end up doing some taco trucks on International. It would fit the profile -- inexpensive, fondness for hard working immigrants...and he's already been seen there. Didn't someone post a picture of him there from a year or so ago?

        It'll be interesting to see where he goes. I'd like to see Alemany Farmer's Market.

          There was a pic of him in the Chronicle from the Fruitvale district last time around.

            He went to taco trucks in LA in another episode.

              Okay then my guess is the Tenderloin and Vietnamese food.

              More interesting will be who he picks to hang out with, and of course where.

          2. Last time we had dinner at Incanto, he was at the table next to us.

              Did you talk to him? I don't think I'd be able to eat due to excessive hyperventilating!

              1. re: The Librarian

                No, we were more interested in getting the food he was moaning over but it was "chef experiments not on the menu" according to our waiter.

                We also ran into him in NY a while back - he gave me his bar stool and we share a few words but then he was set upon by giggling girl groupees and he ended up fleeing.

                1. re: larochelle

                  I ate at his restaurant Les Halles and I didn't even know who he was until years later.
