Watch the Trailer for Anthony Bourdain’s LES Episode of ‘Parts Unknown,’ Airing Sunday [VIDEO]

Posted on: November 8th, 2018 at 5:05 am by

The abbreviated final season of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown concludes this Sunday (November 11) with a much-hyped episode centered on the Lower East Side.

The personal journey finds the late Bourdain revisiting his former stomping grounds and chatting with some of its luminaries, 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.

The Cro-Mags’ Harley Flanagan is also a big part of the episode – he and Bourdain initially crossed paths in the 1970s – and was apparently instrumental in making it all happen.

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.

In anticipation of the series finale, CNN released the following thirty-second promo spot.
