Lafayette restaurant to host vigil Sunday for celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain, Chef And TV Personality, Dead At 61

Julian Medina, the owner of eight Mexican restaurants in NY, said he and Bourdain crossed paths a few times at industry events. The celebrity chef, known for his show Parts Unknown on CNN, was reportedly found dead in his hotel room near Strasbourg, in France.

Gladys, a longtime editor at the newspaper, said there had been no indication her son had been thinking of taking his own life.

He had everything. Success beyond his wildest dreams. She continued praising her friend, who she said "brought a breath of fresh air and a new energy".

In his 2000 book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly - the book that would propel him to fame - Bourdain spoke about using cocaine, heroin, LSD, weed and mushrooms.

Anthony Bourdain, a gifted storyteller and writer who took CNN viewers around the world, has died.

"It is the whole family of French gastronomy that joins me, to renew our deep friendship to our bereaved American brothers", he added.

"This leads us to suspect that not much preparation and premeditation went into the act, and leads us more in the direction of an impulsive act", said Mr.de Rocquigny.

And a source told People that Bourdain had a taxing work schedule as he filmed "Parts Unknown" in the months before his death.

The company released a statement about her death: "Although Kate has not been affiliated with the brand for more than a decade, she and her husband and creative partner, Andy, were the founders of our beloved brand". "I know it's been a couple of days, but it is still so raw". Check out Buzzfeed to learn what happens on hotline calls and see what resources are available. He recounted getting drunk and stoned - "the kind of drunk where you've got to put a hand over one eye to see straight" - and said he would "peel out" in his 4×4 on his way back from nightly trips to the brothels.

Before his death, Bourdain was also supporting his girlfriend Asia Argento after she told The New Yorker she had been raped by Harvey Weinstein.

"I've spent such a lot of time in the developing world, I was caught in a war in Beirut, been in Liberia, the Congo, Iraq and Libya and realised how fast things can get bad, how arbitrary good fortune and cruelty and death", he said in the interview.

Before he got into television, he worked as a chef at the NY restaurant. "To make us a little less afraid of the unknown", Barack Obama tweeted.
