It’s been just over a year since Anthony Bourdain’s passing. To commemorate the late chef, world traveler, and “enthusiast,” his home state of New Jersey has officially unveiled what they’re calling the “Anthony Bourdain Food Trail.” Christened by the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism on June 13th, the statewide trail will take travelers to 10 eateries that Bourdain previously visited in a 2015 episode of Parts Unknown, spread statewide through Bergen, Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, and Camden counties.
Is it possible to eat at all 10 in one day? We’re willing to find out! Call us, Jersey!
All of the eateries on the Anthony Bourdain Food Trail will be in areas accessible by either car, train, or bus from New York City and Philadelphia — ripe for a food-lover’s pilgrimage. The official trail commemoration took place at Hiram’s Roadstand in Fort Lee, a hot dog stand that Bourdain frequented as a kid and one of the 10 trail stops.
Afar reports that Christopher Bourdain (the late chef’s brother) speaking at the trail commemoration, encouraged people to explore New Jersey’s culinary diversity by looking beyond the trail’s 10 stops, a remark that echoes his brother’s appetite for the unknown and restless spirit.
