Travel Channel foodie Anthony Bourdain announced over the weekend that he had finished filming the final episode of his highly successful “No Reservations” TV show, and he chose local staple Jay & Lloyds at 2718 Avenue U to wrap up the show’s run.
Bourdain will be moving from from the Travel Channel to host a weekly show on CNN next year, according to the New York Post.
“I’m really looking forward to coming over to CNN. I think the world is going to get a whole lot bigger for me,” said Bourdain in a CNN release. “I hope that old fans and new ones will be excited about what’s coming down the road.”
He later tweeted that he’s excited to travel to “Congo? Libya? Finally?”
Looks like pastrami on rye in Sheepshead Bay is no match for the fare available in war-torn Africa. Or, heck, maybe he was trying to get a bite of some of the city’s best pastrami before chowing down on tarantulas and dung-beetles.
