No Reservations’ Final Stop: Brooklyn
A Word From Anthony Bourdain:
“Our best to our friends the Randazzo family of Randazzo’s, Sunny Balzano at Sunny’s, Yuri Saian at Primorski and Roll-N-Roaster. They welcomed our crew with open arms when we filmed the Brooklyn episode of No Reservations — and all were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. We wish them each a speedy recovery so they can reopen for business soon.”
Tonight is the night. At 9|8c, No Reservations takes its final bow in Brooklyn, NY, a place that Anthony Bourdain thought he knew, just across the river from the city in which he’s lived nearly all of his life.
While in Brooklyn, Tony is joined by rapper Talib Kweli on a visit to Blanca restaurant in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood. Reservations at this popular, $180-a-plate restaurant must be made weeks, sometimes even months, in advance.
And what would a final episode be without cameo appearances by 2 actors from Tony’s favorite cable program, The Wire? Actors Michael Kenneth Williams and Omar Little join Tony at Gloria’s for some essential soul food.
Throughout the night, Tony explores areas of Brooklyn he’s never seen, including the famous Coney Island where he takes a few rides on the Cyclone rollercoaster.
