“Despite his comments about my favorite city in America, I still adore this guy in a way. Anthony has an interesting outlook, and having been around the block a couple of times, he offers me insight that I use as a reference point. I also agree that if you want to eat animals, eat animals. However, if you don't want to eat animals, don't. But neither party should impose their beliefs on each other. Anthony is only reacting in the same fashion as the puppy huggers by saying that they should be stopped. They should promote their side, he should promote his, and all will be well. On certain occasions, I believe that there are lines which should be drawn, but I continue to remind myself that it is not always pavement to be drawing lines.”

“When he says "they must be stopped", I'm pretty sure he didn't mean that they should be stopped from not eating meat or from publicly advocating for vegetarianism, but rather that they must be stopped from using force to impose their lifestyle on all of us, and he is absolutely correct. The food nazis represent the same sort of mentality as the Christian Coalition, they wish to use government- which is force- to compel all persons to live exactly like themselves. They hold no regard whatsoever for the rights of others, they genuinely believe that the righteousness of their cause justifies anything they do in its name. They are dangerous, the are the enemies of liberty, and therefore they are the enemies of the entire human species.

“living here in "philly" there are some damn good restaurants like Thai Lake in Chinatown and reputable Italian restaurants. hugs for puppies is BS. i agree that "philly" is a 2 horse town. veg heads stink and will not deter me from eating roast duck, lobster or t-bone steak. my prblem with tony is about his last meal. bone marrow, parsley salad. what?!?!?!? his drop-dead gorgeous sardinian wife her her family made one of the best, if not the best meals...ever. st.john street location les halles sucks.”

“I love bourdain, his show and his books. But when it comes to this philly thing, I think a few things are in play. Since we're so close to nyc, tons of aspiring chefs go up there and never look back. I think he needs to look at philly like he looks at his favorite asian cities. That is, find the hidden, delightful surprises, cause that, I think, is what philly is really all about. We have amazing indian food unassuming working-clss neighborhoods (Ekta, Tiffin), "new american" type stuff at awesome music venues (Johnny Brenda's), and dives he can't not love (bob and barbara's, rays happy birthday bar, the fire). And I think that last bit underscores either why he should come, or why he's afraid to come: Philadelphia is all the things that he misses about a New York that will never come back. Dirty, blue collar, brutally honest, a place that doesn't owe anything to anyone but its own.”
