Anthony Bourdain just left the Italian Market, visiting Di Bruno Bros. and Paesano's before packing up the van and moving on. He talked cheese with monger Emilio Magnucci, and got a sandwich with Paesano's owner Peter McAndrews in tow. But, Bourdain's favorite part of his visit to the famous Philly landmark was a piece of street art.
"Finding a portrait of Marco Pierre White on a skateboard nailed to a telephone pole in South Philly a nice surprise."
Bourdain then snapped a pic of the visage of Marco Pierre White, known as The Godfather of Modern Cooking and the first celebrity chef, which is painted onto a skateboard and nailed into a telephone pole near Paesano's.
Looks like Bourdain is hitting all the familiar spots most "insider" shows hit (in his defense, those two are definite must-sees in Philly), and we hope he goes a little outside the box for the next few stops. Stay tuned for more tireless Bourdain coverage the rest of the day.
