Bourdain Impresses Staff at El Ideas
The Layover host Anthony Bourdain may have canceled one appearance while he's in town, but he most certainly showed up for his reservation Tuesday at the innovative BYOB El Ideas in West Pilsen.
The ecstatic owner/chef, Phillip Foss, had this to write about the experience:
"Surreal. Cooked for Tony Bourdain tonight. True to form & a reason he's always been an inspiration is he brought Schlitz tall boys for himself & left them behind for us."
He even tweeted a photo of the evidence.
UPDATE: Bourdain apparently dined alone as cameras taped a segment that will air later this year for The Layover.
And speaking of awesome BYOBs, here's a list of some of my favorites around town.
