“Gone, but not forgotten.”
New Jersey legislature unanimously approved the highly-anticipated Anthony Bourdain Food Trail as of late January. The trail will highlight 10 New Jersey eateries visited by Anthony Bourdain in an episode of his food and travel show, “Parts Unknown.”
Visitors can enjoy the local haunts of the late celebrity chef and travel documentarian in his hometown of Leonia, NJ.
“It was heartbreaking for his fans and for those who knew him in Leonia to find out of his passing. A designated trail of his favorite dining spots is a fitting way to honor the memory of one of New Jersey’s best known chefs,” New Jersey Assemblyman Paul Moriarty said in his June statement.
Included in the food trail, foodies can visit Kubel’s in Barnegat Light; Hiram’s Roadstand in Fort Lee; and Knife and Fork in Atlantic City, to name a few.
“Even after international fame, he never forgot his Jersey roots. Each episode, Bourdain brought his homegrown wit, charm and sense of humanity to his viewers. He became a New Jersey food icon.” said Assemblywoman Carol Murphy.
