The infamously grumpy, sharp-tongued host of NO RESERVATIONS, Anthony Bourdain, is coming to the Hippodrome Theatre on May 22. Anthony Bourdain is the acclaimed TV personality, best-selling author, public speaker, weary world traveler, gourmand, punk-rock aficionado, proud New Yorker and, most recently, doting father. Eric Ripert, Chef and author and host of PBS’ Avec Eric has been honing his talents at the three-star Michelin restaurant Le Bernardin, as executive chef and co-owner, for the last 18 years.
NO RESERVATIONS – AN EVENING WITH ANTHONY BOURDAIN AND ERIC RIPERT is a frank and provocative back and forth about what really goes on behind the kitchen doors – from both ends of the spectrum. Through illustrative anecdotes, stories and a Q & A, the night will include highlights from Eric’s career and lurid lowlights from Tony’s career and gives you a real-world understanding of what it takes to survive in the cutthroat culture of fine dining restaurants. The frequent tag team have appeared often together – at the Gourmet Institute, on Martha Stewart, the 92nd Street Y in NYC. Both have been regular judges on Top Chef. They have little else in common, other than friendship.
NO RESERVATIONS will be followed by THE HIPPODROME THEATRE’S first ever FOODIE EXPERIENCE. Baltimore’s Top restaurants including Woodberry Kitchen, The Wine Market, Dogwood, and more will be sampling gourmet menu items. Come taste wine and spirits from around the world while mingling with your fellow foodies, Anthony and Eric in the best venue in Baltimore!
