No Reservations in Montreal: Anthony Bourdain sightings

Anthony Bourdain was spotted this weekend in Montreal filming his TV show, No Reservations. Following Bourdain's Tweets we know that he was hanging out with Fred Morin and the Joe Beef gang. Bourdain also mentioned Schwartz's and of course we heard rumors that he was at his other regular haunt, Au Pied de Cochon.

We also have a confirmed sighting that he arrived, perhaps after a few libations, with his camera crew at Le Nouveau Palais (281 Bernard West) for late-night tacos. In case you did not know, the Green Taco food truck gang use, Le Nouveau Palais, Wednesday through Saturday from midnight to 3 a.m. for their food service. Shame Bourdain did not get to sample Chef and Co-Owner, Gita Seaton's regular menu.

We are also going to make the prediction, you read it here first, that Bourdain spent time with his camera crew and Montreal's Lardo Retardos, the dudes from Epic Meal Time.

Update (January 2012): The Capri Tavern as featured in Bourdain's episode of The Layover, was also featured in Montreal's dirty resto list with fines for rats and roaches.  Click here for more info.
