David Simon Talks Food with Anthony Bourdain

Yesterday, the tell-tale trucks were parked on Elysian Fields telling us that Treme is back and shooting on Frenchmen Street. Later in the morning, a Steve Zahn sighting confirmed that. The show starts shooting once hurricane season ends, so it started again this year on November

Last year, Anthony Bourdain joined the writing staff to bring his knowledge of New York restaurant kitchens to the show. Recently, he sat down with co-producer David Simon to talk about food in Louisiana. If forced to choose, Simon says his last meal in New Orleans would come from Cochon, while Bourdain opts for a muffaletta from Verti Marte. See the conversation here.
