Bourdain, 61, was no stranger to New Orleans and South Louisiana where he visited often when filming segment for his TV shows. When asked which U.S. city was at the top of his must-see list, Bourdain chose New Orleans: "In America, there might be better gastronomic destinations than New Orleans, but there is no place more uniquely wonderful.... So it's a must see city because there's no explaining it, no describing it. You can't compare it to anything. So, far and away New Orleans."

Man that is so sad. I for one have never got to that point, so I cannot judge anyone for the decisions they make. I can only pray and feel for their family and firends I hope this does not cause a cascading domino effect liek we saw in the music industry last year. It cna be tough on so many, and I hope I never have ot deal with it perosnally. I always liked his work was not a huge follower, but have known how he felt about New Orleans and that he had a great piece in CNN even though I am not a fan of most media outlets I would watch his stuff on there while eating lunch at work. Too many ccelebrties going this router nowadays. It is sad, but I don't remeber this when I was younger.

Yeah, this one hit hard... I watched a few of his episodes over the past weekend... A rare storytelling talent w/ the ability to cross all cultures across the globe and unite us thru food while digging deeper under the surface to where the 'meat' of each story lay...

He had some really good pieces. He definitley had a way of making you feel like you were there, and explaining culture and food like you were the one eating it.
