Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown Concludes with LES Finale Nov. 11
The abbreviated final season of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown is underway. Indeed, nearly over. But you’ll need to wait another few weeks for the Lower East Side/East Village treatment.
The highly-anticipated episode is the finale, airing November 11 on CNN. (It actually premieres at the Food Film Festival in New York on October 24.)
It’s the last episode in a twelve-season series, cut short due to Bourdain’s suicide in France five months ago. The personal journey tracks through the neighborhood and some of its luminaries over the years, including Richard Hell, Deborah Harry and Chris Stein, Lydia Lunch, Fab 5 Freddy, Danny Fields, Amos Poe, Jim Jarmusch, Kembra Pfahler, John Lurie, and photographer Clayton Patterson.
Meetups went down at neighborhood stalwarts like Ray’s Candy Store, Emilio’s Ballato, John’s of 12th Street, Max Fish, and B&H Dairy. Newcomers like Kings County Imperial, Saxon+Parole, Doughnut Plant, and Big Gay Ice Cream also cameo.
