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.
