Will tracking Anthony Bourdain's dining excursions around San Francisco ever get old? The answer is no. The host of CNN's popular show, Parts Unknown, has been filming around the Bay Area this week, with confirmed sightings at classic SF spots Swan Oyster Depot, House of Prime Rib and the embattled Sinbad's at Pier 2. Rumor has it that he's also been spending some QT in the East Bay, possibly hitting up Juhu Beach Club for dinner and later finding himself the object of drunken affection at an unnamed pool hall.
A very drunk lady was like "Mr Birdsall, would you and Mr Bourdain like to come out and and play pool with us?" Uh no actually.— John Birdsall (@John_Birdsall) June 24, 2015
On past visits, Mr. Bourdain has visited San Francisco mainstays Li Po Lounge, Sam's Pizza and Hamburgers, Tadich Grill and The Tonga Room, among others, declaring "Let no one say I don't love San Francisco...It is my kind of dirty old town." And what a magnificent, dirty old town it is.
What other Bay Area treasures were the subject of Bourdain's affection? If you see something, say something.
UPDATE: According to avid Bourdain-spotters, the silvery fox has also been seen dining at Tosca Cafe and Trader Vic's in Emeryville.
UPDATED UPDATE: More intel from loyal readers places Bourdain at 4505 Burgers & BBQ, hanging with chef Richie Nakano. Wonder what they were talking about? He was also spotted filming at Miss Ollie's in Oakland.
