I remember (still on eGullet) thanking him for the sensitivity with which he filmed No Reservations in Beirut in 2006, and more recently was heartened to read his defence of Argento. He brought so much good into the world. This is such sad news.

This one felt like a punch in the gut. He could be biting, but always spoke his truth. And I always thought he came across as sensitive and caring, and maybe also sad and alone (that Borneo episode made me weep a little for him). My heart breaks for his family and friends, and for him, as well.

Writer David Simon (The Wire, Treme) gives a very nice tribute to Bourdain in his blog. Bourdain consulted on his HBO series Treme, and the Chef in that series Janette Desautel (Actress Kim Dickens) was one of the best written characters on that underrated series.
