Anthony Bourdain on chefs at Trump Hotels

Post by nycfellow » Thu Dec 22, 2016 5:07 pm

Bourdain, as usual, is hilarious. There's a long interview with Eater, with a little about Trump - the story is in a bunch of places, but I'll link one that is free to print his, uh, exact words. http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/311402-bourdain-vows-to-boycott-restaurants-at-trumps-washington-hotel

Highlights: On chef David Burke who has a restaurant in the new Trump hotel in DC:
“So Burke’s a steaming loaf of shit, as far as I’m concerned, and feel free to quote me,”

And on Burke and other star chefs working at Trump properties:
“I’m not asking you to start putting up barricades now, but when they come and ask you, ‘Are you with us?’ You do have an option. You can say ‘No thanks, guys. I don’t look good in a brown shirt. Makes me look a little, I don’t know, not great. It’s not slimming.’

Pretty funny, but then I like Bourdain...most of the time. He has a common sense about what people eat on a day to day basis. His snobbishness is unique (criticizing people who won't try Frito Pies); he cracks me up.

Did you see these:
https://www.washingtonian.com/2016/12/2 ... ry-hotels/
Before the Trump International Hotel opened, Donald Trump liked to brag that the business he and his family built inside the Old Post Office would be “one of the great hotels of the world.”

But according to a year-end list of new luxury hotels from a travel group that specializes in high-end accommodations, it’s one of the world’s worst. The Trump hotel rated as the world’s third-lousiest new hotel, according to the membership-only United Kingdom operation LTI-Luxury Travel Intelligence.

“The building itself is undoubtedly impressive, but once inside we start to ask questions,” LTI’s review begins, acknowledging the Old Post Office as a marvel of late-19th-century Romanesque Revival architecture and design. But from there, the review is brutal.

“LTI finds the décor a little garish and more quantity over quality,” it continues.
...

“Service is poor on occasions and lacks confidence,” LTI founder Michael Crompton writes. “The whole experience seems a little forced, and therefore this place is not for the true discerning luxury traveller.”


A WaPo review of Burke's restaurant was reasonable but the righties went mad because it did not rave - so the author created two reviews:

Why does that faggot always look like he's just peed his pants?

That's what I want to know.
This board is my life.

Is that why Trump wears such long ties?

You should be so lucky! Clever and sexy. And definitely NOT a faggot.
