Legendary Sushi Chef Fights Tears Remembering Anthony Bourdain
Even if Bourdain was usually out of town, he had an ever-growing list of beloved places in New York City. Some restaurants were all-around favorites of his, and others he frequented to cure particular cravings. Bourdain spent his TV career tracking down off-the-beaten-path restaurants and turning them into must-visit destinations. His restaurant was the site of many epic Bourdain-Ripert meals. Go support this great cause! What would he order? Chicken wing and clam dish last night at prunerestaurant Delicious.
Craving world-class nigiri and ramen? Look no further than New York , where nearly one-fifth of the city's Michelin-starred restaurants are Japanese. That's kind of astounding, given that 71 restaurants across multiple cuisines received stars in the NYC guide. Fifteen alone were Japanese —the highest concentration of Michelin-starred spots outside of Japan itself. According to Eater , a spike in demand for kaiseki dining traditional multi-course meals and pricy sushi joints has helped Manhattan's rapidly growing Japanese scene. And with new additions to the Michelin list like Satsuki in Midtown and the Lower East Side's Bar Uchu —both with omakase, or chef's tasting menus—the trend won't be slowing down anytime soon.

There may not be any other dining experience like my Omakase meal at Sushi Bar Yasuda. Everything you read on here, or have heard, about Chef Yasuda is true. Chef Yasuda has no assistant chef. He prepares his sushi with giant karate weathered hands. His knuckles firmly pack his delicious rice for his sushi. He freezes the fish in medical freezers, which concentrate the flavor beyond words. He is a storyteller with every piece of sushi—bringing a sense of wonderful oral history to your meal.
He had Vietnamese beer with President Obama in Hanoi and dipped pizza in ketchup in Tehran, but no place stacked up quite like his hometown of NYC well, adopted hometown -- he grew up across the river in New Jersey. Bourdain dedicated two episodes of his globetrotting show to NYC: the Bronx, which he visited in Season 4, and, Queens, which he visited in Season 9. The focus here is deep-fried pig parts, aka cuchifritos. Bourdain continues his pork tour of the Bronx with rum and a hearty-looking bowl of pigtail stew plus a bottle of Red Stripe. This nondescript counter-service Caribbean joint has been on the corner of East rd St and Gunther Ave for ages, despite going through various owners. Honestly, it looks delicious.
