Anthony Bourdain Mourners Have Turned His Former Restaurant Into a Shrine

Anthony Bourdain's fans are remembering him at the sites of NYC's Les Halles restaurant.

By Alesandra Dubin

After Anthony Bourdain died on Friday, loved ones and fans paid tribute to him around the world — from Bourdain's chef colleagues, to President Barack Obama, to ordinary fans everywhere. Among those are a devoted group in New York, who made a pilgrimage to a significant spot in Bourdain's history to create a memorial.

When he was working as executive chef of the French brasserie Les Halles, he penned a 1999 New Yorker essay about the restaurant industry that he spun into the 2000 memoir Kitchen Confidential — and that's when his star swiftly rose.

Les Halles had two NYC locations — and fans flocked to both today. They placed photos, flowers, cards, notes, and other tributes near remaining signage up at the sites in memory of the chef who inspired them.
