Anthony Bourdain Best Drinking Quotes

 
ANTHONY BOURDAIN 'S 5 BEST DRINKING QUOTES


.


 



"Even on the Serengeti, it ain't a barbecue if there ain't some kind of beer." 
-- from Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (Tanzania)



 
 





 














. “I believe -- to the best of my recollection, anyway -- that I soon made the classic error of moving from margaritas to actual shots of straight tequila. It does make it easier to meet new people.”  -- from Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (New Mexico) “They're professionals at this in Russia, so no matter how many Jell-O shots or J├Ąger shooters you might have downed at college mixers, no matter how good a drinker you might think you are, don't forget that the Russians -- any Russian -- can drink you under the table.” -- excerpted from A Cook’s Tour: Global Adventures in Extreme Cuisines









“This is the dream of all the world. The dream is to live in Granada. You know, work in the morning, have a one-hour nap in the afternoon, and at night go out and have that life. Go out and see your friends and eat tapas and drink red wine and be in a beautiful place.” 
-- from Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (Spain)





“Personally, I’d be perfectly happy to just call it a day and fuck off to the nearest hammock and a frosty boat drink with an umbrella in it.” 
-- from Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Caribbean)

Caffe Dante Re-Opens with JG MELON to GREENWICH VILLAGE


BIG NEWS on MACDOUGAL STREET




Caffe Dante


 




The beloved Greenwich Village institution for 100 years,
the new CAFFE DANTE is open to open its doors on
Macdougal Street in New York's Greenwich Village where it 
operated for exactly 100 years before owner (44years) 
Mario Flotta called it quits in April 2015 and sold the
legendary caffe to new owners.

I just poped my head in there before and they look like they
ready to open any day now. Only thing is, although the place looks quite nice, it doesn't look like it will be anything like it was for some
100 years, which is a true and classic Italian Caffe that served 
New York's best cup of Espresso along with Cappuccino and 
Italian Pastries, Sandwiches, and homemade Gelato.
The new place looks like a cool new Italian Bar, or Wine Bar 
and not the type of place where a writer can go and linger
over a cappuccino for an hour while he bangs out his lates
novela.
Well, I'll find out soon when I go and chcek it out.


A CLASSIC JG MELON BURGER



Up Macdougal Street less than 100 feet from Caffe Dante comes
a big new suprise for New York and Greenwich Village as an
offshoot of the famed Upper East Side 's famed JG MELON
bar and Burger Joint will be opening shortly on the corner
of Macdougal & bleecker Streets. Yhis guy for one is huge fan
of JG Melon and their awesome Burgers and am looking forward
to a great classic on a corner that has one mediocre food
establsihment after te other for the past 30 years. JG Melon
with their great burgers and cool laid back ambiance will be
a welcome new neighbor.
And by the way, for this guy, JG Melon makes one of 
New York's Top Two Burgers along with The
Shake Shack, JG Melon and Shake Shack get my
# 1 and # 2 Votes ...

If all goes well, this Greenwich Village JG Melon offshoot
