I am bringing up from retirement one of the first lists I ever put together on Chip and Company all the way from June of 2009. Its hard to believe we have been around 1 year and 1 month now. Happy Anniversary to Chip and Company!

I love watching No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain Monday’s at 10pm on the Travel Channel. <Plug>

Officially I have not eaten at a single place on his list. I have been close to a few of them but unfortunately went some place else. Of course I don’t travel the globe eating food either.

Which made me think of my 13 Places you should eat before you die from my travels over this crazy world. Most of them will be in places I have lived so if your not on the East Coast then sorry charlie. I will throw the link to Anthony Bourdain host of No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain Monday’s at 10pm on the Travel Channel <plug>list below my meager list.

  1. J. Basuls Nobels – High Point NC – Alot of memories here, plus the best Courvoisier & Currant Bread Pudding.
  2. Hector’s – Erie, PA – Best Italian Food by far! to bad they are closed.
  3. PJ’s Oyster Bar “The Original” – Indian Rocks Beach, FL – Best oysters and seafood in the Largo area.
