Even though I’ve lived in the Boston area my whole life, I’m still very unfamiliar with the southern half of the city. While some believe Bourdain passed over Dorchester’s grittier locales for more yuppie-friendly spots – stopping at a yacht club, for example – it should be interesting to see a different side of the city I’m from (or at least say I’m from).
After watching the episode, or even before it, you can trace Bourdain’s footsteps in Boston thanks to this guide from Boston.com. Stops include Greenhills Irish Bakery in Dorchester, The Snack Bar in Cambridge, and Michael’s Deli in Brookline.
The episode airs April 18th at 9PM.
