Bourdain's Favorite U.S. City For Eating is SF, MORE

BOURDAIN WIRE - In honor of Anthony Bourdain's new series The Layover premiering tonight, the NY Times engaged him in some chatter about the food cities of the world, and Bourdain said San Francisco is his favorite city for eating in the U.S.: "Anyone who doesn’t have a great time in San Francisco is pretty much dead to me...It’s a two-fisted drinking town, a carnivorous meat-eating town, it’s dirty and nasty and wonderful. There are a bunch of great bars in Chinatown: Mr. Bing’s, Li Po and then the fantastic Zam Zam Room in the Haight. It is definitely a place untouched by time." Another favorite? House of Prime Rib. Read the full interview here. [NY Times]

THE UNDERGROUND - If you're interested in eating dinner at an undisclosed location with MythBusters' Adam Savage, now's your chance. He'll be one of several erudite notables hosting a table at the upcoming Salon Bleue dinner event (Dec. 1) put on by graffEats and SonicSF. The four course-meal promises overflowing food, wine, beer and conversation, in the style of 18th century Parisian salons. More information and tickets here. [EaterWire]

CRABS! - The outlook for crab on your Thanksgiving dinner table is not good. Negotiations amongst the inner circles of crab producers have reached a stale mate, but the powers that be are hopeful that crabs will be in full swing by Christmastime. [SFoodie]

BERNAL HEIGHTS - It's officially official: Skip's Tavern is now The Lucky Horseshoe, and there is a sign up outside to prove it. [Bernalwood]

CRIME - A reminder to keep your wits about you out there: There were 80 customers in Four Barrel Coffee when a scuffle accompanying an attempted robbery rolled in. Thankfully, the man roasting means wouldn't let the suspects out and they were handcuffed soon thereafter. “That was definitely the most intense thing I’ve ever seen,” said Tal Mor, one of the coffee roasters.
