“Honestly, I’ve never even bothered with Philly,” says bad boy chef/author/TV host Anthony Bourdain to the Philadelphia Weekly's Josh Valocchi. "It seems to me it's a two-horse town: Starr and Perrier." Clearly he's forgotten several other major players: Barbaro (RIP), Smarty Jones and Afleet Alex.
Bourdain, who reads from his new book "No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach" at the Free Library Saturday (2 p.m., It's free), also complains to the PW about "the worst kind of terrorists," animal-rights groups such as Hugs for Puppies, which recently protested foie gras, made from torturing ducks.
