Bourdain at Beast

This should be an interesting No Reservation episode - really happy for the folks at Beast.
Any guesses on his other stops? Many bloggers have suggested Black Hoof and Porchetta & Co. I hope he will get to try the breakfast sammie at Porchetta (my favorite) and Stockyard.

  1. judging by his post to Toronto Life (i.e. "get your facts straight"), I'm pretty certain Anthony's not going to Beast. Maybe next time around.

    1. I was under the impression that No Reservations already taped their final episode (Brooklyn) and the show was ending. 'The Layover" was renewed for a second season though, so maybe for that. Otherwise he is moving on to CNN to start a Food show there.

        Within the last week "The Layover" cancelled a shoot at a restaurant (not in Toronto) when Tony and the producers found out that the restaurant had promoted the filming in advance, you'd have to be pretty stupid at this point to publicly talk about Tony shooting at your place.

          Travel and Escape says he is in toronto today on facebook

            He is, I know for sure he filmed something in Panchos in Kensington

            1. re: bytepusher

              Ah, I was wondering where they might go in Kensington because the "cinematographer" posted a comment about Kensington Market on his twitter:

              Bourdain also posted on his twitter : "Agave y Aguacate in Kensington Market extraordinary!"

                So it is for The Layover it seems. Nice.

                  It is for layover apparently and the places are listed under this twitter feed:

        2. He did make a stop at Poutini's tonight.

          2. So Nick auf der Mauer of Porchetta and Co. Posted a pic on twitter with Bourdain and I guess Scott of Beast....This was what he tweeted with a pic "Great afternoon hanging out w @Bourdain @BeastRestaurant & @tvsuperstarr"......and the back ground was Porchetta and Co...
