Anthony Bourdain has broken the omertà

Anthony Bourdain on San Francisco: “it’s a two-fisted drinking town, a carnivorous meat-eating town,” and “anyone who doesn’t have a great time in San Francisco is pretty much dead to me”. Hear, hear:

Q. Favorite city for eating in the United States?

A. Anyone who doesn’t have a great time in San Francisco is pretty much dead to me. You go there as a snarky New Yorker thinking it’s politically correct, it’s crunchy granola, it’s vegetarian, and it surprises you every time. It’s a two-fisted drinking town, a carnivorous meat-eating town, it’s dirty and nasty and wonderful. There are a bunch of great bars in Chinatown: Mr. Bing’s, Li Po and then the fantastic Zam Zam Room in the Haight. It is definitely a place untouched by time.

Goddammit, he’s gone and spilled the beans about Aub Zam Zam. If he starts blabbing about Alembic or the Orbit Room or Bourbon and Branch, we’re going to have to fit him with some concrete shoes.
