Regular Dish readers will know that Anthony Bourdain, TV’s favourite bad-boy chef–turned–professional eater was in town last week to shoot an episode of The Layover, his new travel show where he attempts to cram in as much fun as possible in 24 to 48 hours. Although we have no idea which places will make it onto the show, here’s a roundup of the various Bourdain spottings from the last few days, along with reactions from the man himself (@Bourdain) or his crew (@tvsuperstarr):

UPDATE: Our Twitter informants tell us Bourdain and his crew were also spotted at The Burger’s Priest and Deq at the Ritz-Carlton.
