NEWS: Anthony Bourdain in Rio

Today, my news reading has two surprises ... 
One good and one bad:

The good news is that Anthony Bourdain, 
host of No Reservations did a program 
entirely devoted to Rio de Janeiro and their food!!

The bad news is that I lost the program that was presented 
last Monday, the 10/15 here in the US.

Now I'm here in cramps ... NEED TO WATCH!!

But here's the LINK with pictures of the places he visited,
to give you a taste ...

And if you are planning to visit, here are the places he visited:

Local chef/restaurant owner, Danni Camillo, took Tony to Bar Urca, a restaurant right on the water in Urca. Like most patrons, Tony and Danni ordered beer and seafood snacks and ate along the seawall next to the restaurant.

Cadeg Market- Adega Cesari

Tony and his wife enjoyed lunch at Adega Cesari, a Churrascaria located at the Cadeg Market. Ottavia has been on a strict training diet, so the all-meat, no-carb menu was quite inviting.
Rua Capitão Felix, 110
Benfica, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Barraca Do Uruguay

Tony wandered to Barraca Do Uruguay, located on Ipanema Beach. This was actually the same vendor he went to 10 years before on A Cook’s Tour! Here, Tony got a delicious sandwich and several caipirinhas.

Come for the seafood, and stay for the view at Mirante da Prainha. Tony met up with local, Dolores, at this seaside restaurant that is nestled into the underdeveloped, secluded beach.
