Anthony Bourdain Tribute Dinner by Chef Nikita Sanches
On June 8, 2018, Anthony Bourdain took his life in Kaysersberg, France. Leaving us — to celebrate him and laud his approach to travel, language, passion, and food. For many of us, Anthony Bourdain was our trusted pioneer and our vessel to travel to hundreds of cities. Our dear friend, and one of our communities most-adored Chefs, Nikita Sanches, had a secret-dream to cook for Anthony. Have a beer with him and chat about the culinary world with him. Join us for an evening prepared in the spirit of the late Chef Bourdain with a glimpse at courses from some of his favorite places in the world. In a nutshell: this is the dinner Nikita would have prepared for Anthony if he was in the room. With glasses raised high, we will listen to music, gather around the frame tables and honor the man that shaped our culinary lives.
