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 has appeared often together – at the Gourmet Institute, on Martha Stewart, the 92nd Street Y in NYC. Both have been regular judges on Top Chef, which has already begun taping in the District! They have little else in common, other than friendship.

Winning tickets include entrance to an afterparty “Eat & Greet” and book signing with Anthony and Eric.
