Tony's coming to town

Anthony Bourdain is coming to Portland in January. Lydia Tenaglia, Executive Producer says:
We’ve had Maine on the short list for several seasons now. However, picking each season’s line-up is not a matter of throwing darts at a map.... I strongly encourage you to send in a detailed list of people/places that we should visit there. Nothing sells a location more than a list of “What’s Not To Be Missed.” You can send that to contact [at], via No Reservations.
[Updated] He went to Street & Co. and J's Oyster. What can you say? He likes good service.

[Updated] Bourdain tells the BDN that Portland has too many transplants to be considered the real Maine.

[Updated 4/13] Watch the show.

Please tell me he's really not going to Street & Co out of all the wonderful places to visit in Portland.

Rumor has it he's going to Emilitsa for "authentic" Greek food. Being from New York he'd recognize the menu and design of the restaurant as being copied directly from Pylos, a Greek restaurant in Manhattan. And you thought Erik and Harding were the worst restaurant operators in Portland...

Erik Desjarlais clearer message: Portland being dubbed the "foodiest small town" in America is a crock of shit. Andrew Knowlton is out of his fu#*^ng mind. Get over yourself Portland.
