Rank #1: Anthony Bourdain

Podcast cover
Read more

Don't ask Anthony Bourdain to limit himself to other people's assumptions. It's been sixteen years since Kitchen Confidential blew up the food world; in the time since, he's built a career as a full-time expectation-upending maverick. Bourdain's books, television shows — and his not insignificant renegade charisma — have catapulted him into the kind of badass cross-genre celebrity that results in bros geeking out over him (though he doesn’t love that) and fans accosting him in the bathroom (he doesn’t totally love that either). Bourdain swung by the Eater Upsell studios to talk about his brand new cookbook, Instagram FOMO, and the life-altering magic of fatherhood.

Rank #11: How to Get Into Any Restaurant

Podcast cover
Read more

Going to popular, hyped-up restaurants is both an obsession and an occupational hazard for editors at Eater. So we've all had our fair share of lines, multi-hour waits, and shut outs.

On the first episode of Eater’s Digest, we gathered Eater editors’ best tips and tricks for getting into restaurants with long waits, and then put a theory of our own to the test on a recent Saturday night at five of New York’s most notoriously busy restaurants. Plus, we discuss some of the biggest food news stories of the week, from a scourge of seagulls on the Jersey Coast, to the most recent shady move from a major food delivery service and more.

Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big City and the recent Bright, Precious Days, was already a successful novelist when he started writing about wine more than two decades ago.

On this week’s Eater Upsell, McInerney chats with Helen and Greg about possibly setting off the rosé craze, the trouble with maintaining a wine collection, and why New York is still the best restaurant city in America.
