Anthony Bourdain was born in New York City. He attended The Englewood School for Boys in New Jersey, Vassar College (for two years) and is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America. He began his career in the food industry over twenty years ago as a dishwasher, gradually working his way up through preparation, to line cook, to sous chef, and chef. He is the executive chef of Manhattan's Brasserie Les Halles, which means, in his words, that he gets to "swan around the kitchen, taking credit for others' work." Bourdain lives in New York City with his wife Ottavia and daughter Ariane.
- He studied at Vassar College, worked for some time in the seafood restaurants of Provincetown, Massachusetts, and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America before running kitchens at New York City's Supper Club, One Fifth Avenue and Sullivan's.
- Les Halles owner Jose de Mereilles initially wanted Tony to go by the French version of his name, Antoine-Michel, much to Tony's protests.
- He and Ottavia Busia welcomed their first child, a girl named Ariane on April 9, 2007. She weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz.
- His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Times, The Observer, Scotland on Sunday, The Face, Limb by Limb, Black Book, and The Independent, and he is a contributing authority for Food Arts magazine.
