French brasserie Les Halles — the restaurant best known for being Anthony Bourdain’s former home — claimed that it closed its Park Avenue South location due to a rent hike issue, with owner Philippe Lajaunie saying they didn’t renew the lease because of a 60 percent increase.
Brasserie Les Halles was a French-brasserie-style restaurant located on 15 John Street (between Broadway & Nassau Street; in the Financial District) in Manhattan, New York City.
Note that on the cover of Kitchen Confidential , author Anthony Bourdain appears to be holding two swords tucked into his whites. This is an accurate picture of Bourdain’s depiction of the kitchen world of New York (and Cape Cod), what he deems the “underbelly” of every restaurant, bar and pub in the city.

At the time of his death, Anthony Bourdain was worth $500,000 in “intangibles such as royalties and residuals from his TV work and books” (via USA Today). This brings Bourdain’s total net worth to $1.2 million dollars : $500,000 in royalties, $250,000 in property, $35,000 in investments, and $425,000 in savings.
LES Halles owner Philippe Lajaunie doesn’t want to talk about the clos ing of his popular Park Avenue South brasserie by the Health De partment last week. It’s hard to blame him: He must feel he’s under government siege on two fronts and doesn’t want to risk saying anything that could make things worse.
Dimitri is a “mama’s boy, loner, intellectual, voracious reader and gourmand,” according to Bourdain , “a gambler, philosopher, gardener, fly-fisherman, fluent in Russian and German” (48). Bourdain meets Dimitri, his first mentor, at the Dreadnaught in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
After Bourdains death and am reading Kitchen confidential again. Many of the aliased characters have been unmasked over the years but one that always gave me trouble to find out was The Silver Shadow .
