Editor’s Note

“Raunchy, juicy, sweaty & delicious...”

Bourdain’s raunchy, juicy, sweaty, and — yes — delicious follow-up to “Kitchen Confidential” is full of hilarious personal anecdotes, along with a dash of invaluable life lessons, like never touch the hollandaise at a buffet.

From the Publisher

Medium Raw marks the return of the inimitable Anthony Bourdain, author of the blockbuster bestseller Kitchen Confidential and three-time Emmy Award-nominated host of No Reservations on TV’s Travel Channel. Bourdain calls his book, “A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook,” and he is at his entertaining best as he takes aim at some of the biggest names in the foodie world, including David Chang, Alice Waters, the Top Chef winners and losers, and many more. If Hunter S. Thompson had written a book about the restaurant business, it could have been Medium Raw.

Kluger even asked Todd Snyder t

BEEF ON WECK Buffalo’s signature roast-beef sandwich is defined by its distinctive bread, the hard, round salt-and-caraway-seed roll called a kummelweck, and by the accompanying gob of horseradish. Get it at Buffalo’s Famous, an orange-Formica takeout joint in Prospect Park South devoted to the foods of western New York (1111 Church Ave.). SHEEPSHEAD BAY STANDARD-BEARERS Sog shrine Brennan & Carr (3432 Nostrand Ave.) has been dunking roast-beef sandwiches in vats of broth like bonbons in chocolate since 1938.

The Best New Burgers in Town ROB PATRONITE 4 Charles Prime Rib 4 Charles St., nr. Greenwich Ave. 212-561-5992 The secret behind 4 Charles Prime Rib’s burger is that there is no secret. Nothing here you haven’t seen before. Two griddled four-ounce patties, American cheese, soft bun, pickles, onion, Dijon-spiked mayo, with the squishy, acquiescent bite of a fast-food burger. I’d even go so far as to say that its cheesy, pickly, oniony flavor profile owes more to McDonald’s than anything else. But every detail is spot-on, the execution flawless, the ingredient synergy unsurpassed. This isn’t
