As a restaurant owner, it’s tiresome listening to large restaurant group mouthpieces put down smaller restaurants in smaller or rural locales by basically saying we’re doing it all wrong because our margins are so slim. We don’t have investors. It’s our own blood, sweat and tears as well as our own money. The competition is fierce for a limited number of consumers. I have owned my pizza restaurant for 36 years in a town of 7000 people with 4 national chains competing against me. I’ve managed to hold my own and make a decent living. It’s insulting to hear Alinea say I’m “doing it all wrong”.

Rank #1: Best Of: 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. (Original air date: October 23, 2016)
