Travel Channel loves this shit

Because of my recent post about Anthony Bourdain, the Travel Channel reached out to me. And no, it's not to ask me to stop posting about whether Anthony Bourdain is gay or not. It was to provide me with information that I may share with you, my dear readers, that is not available to just anyone. Apparently, they are only sharing it with "certain" bloggers. Little do they know about my lack of clout in this digital world. But alas, I share it with you anyway, if only because I love No Reservations and NYC and if you do too, you will love this teaser for tonight's episode:

As a teenager growing up just outside New York City, Manhattan – to Tony – was like living a dream. And there were institutions in that dream, some of which are still going strong, some of which are hanging on by a thread and some luck, and some of which have since disappeared. In an effort to remember 'his' Manhattan, Tony visits some of his favorites while he still can.

In this episode titled DISAPPEARING MANHATTAN, Tony and some notable guests visit some of the oldest, most classic, and undoubtedly-NY restaurants. These cherished landmarks, such as Katz's Deli, Russ & Daughters, Hop Kee, and Sammy's Romanian, have become the heart and soul of this great city and its proud and honorable culinary history rich with cultural and ethnic diversity. Unfortunately, due to the changing times, these establishments are in danger of disappearing off the NYC cultural map. Tony refers to this beautiful episode as his love song to the great city of New York.
