I wore a dressy dress and my fellow was in a suit and tie. It's fun to dress up but not necessary. Very casual is not recommended, after all Symphony Hall is special..

We didn't really know what kind of show to expect. It turned out great and the 2.5 hours went by quickly. Anthony Bourdain is really funny. We loved the show!

Fun to hear stories and generally a really good night, although the Q&A at the end seemed awkward...

The show got started late because of issues with long lines at Will Call - seems like the majority of the audience bought tickets through...continued

More Information



Chef, author, and raconteur Anthony Bourdain is best known for traveling the globe on his stomach, daringly consuming some of the world’s most exotic dishes on his hit TV shows Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations_ and_ The Layover. Somewhat notoriously, he has established himself as a professional gadfly, bête noir, advocate, social critic, and pork enthusiast, recognized for his caustic sense of humor worldwide. He is as unsparing of those things he hates, as he is evangelical about his passions.

The “chef-at-large” at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, Bourdain is the author of the bestselling Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, a candid, hysterical, and sometimes shocking portrait of life in restaurant kitchens that has been translated into more than 28 languages – as well as the travel journal, A Cook’s Tour, 3 crime novels, a cookbook, a biography of Typhoid Mary, the bestselling graphic novel Get JIRO!, and others.

His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Times of London, Bon Appetit, Gourmet and many other publications.  He has shared his insights about team building and crisis management with the Harvard Business Review_. He has been profiled by CBS Sunday Morning_ and Nightline_, and has been a guest on _The Late Show with David Letterman, Morning Joe, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show, Charlie Rose, The Colbert Report, and Real Time with Bill Maher.

Bourdain joined the writing staff of HBO’s Treme_ in 2011, contributing to the popular drama’s restaurant storylines.  He recently launched his own publishing line with Ecco, _Anthony Bourdain Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. His first titles will be released in early 2013.

No Reservations_, widely popular all over the world, has won four Emmy Awards, with many other nominations. 2013 will see the premiere of two new television shows hosted by Bourdain: _The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC with Nigella Lawson, and a travel docu-series for CNN.
