Bourdain Day: These are the New York and New Jersey restaurants Anthony Bourdain featured over the years

It’s been four years since beloved chef, writer and host Anthony Bourdain died. Friends and fans mourned the loss in 2018, posting tributes online and contributing to pop-up memorials in front of Les Halles, where Bourdain was once executive chef.

"I suffered so much grief after what happened that I only hope people will turn all that grief into happiness of life, and remembering how Tony made the world a smaller place by bringing us all together," Andrés told Esquire in 2019.
