I enjoyed the episode. R Bar made me laugh since that's a stones throw from me. Did a good job with surrounding neighborhoods, was even suprised they went to the bucktown area. I loved the hippie joke about satsuma vegetarian restaurant in bywater/marigny area. I do enjoy thier juice drinks, and always wear my bush/cheney '04 t shirt just to give the hipsters heart attacks.

Comical coming from Bourdain who pimps The Ramones.
Did Bourdain or Davis say that? And while I enjoyed the episode, the premise of the Layover is BS. They might as well get rid of the stupid clock/countdown, as the producers make no effort whatsoever to play along with the 'limited time in a city' narrative. Unless Bourdain actually ate at 40 restaurants in 3 days or whatever

I enjoyed the show. Thought they did a good job of highlighting the fact that most tourist have no clue about NOLA past Bourbon street. I liked the one guys comment about if you want to act like a douche you should just stay on Bourbon cuz the locals will just run you out their bars. Probably saw about 12 places I've been to in the last month some of them multiple times. I wonder if this will drive some tourism into neighborhood joints now. The FQ as we know it might be dying.
