Anthony Bourdain Says Brooklyn is the ‘nexus’ of world cuisine… visits Roberta’s

Of course we already knew this was true.

Earlier this month, the “No Reservations” star wrapped up the week-long Kings County taste tour for a final fall show.

The brash New Jersey boy turned celeb chef told The News his trip to the borough was prompted by cooks he’s met from across the globe raving about Brooklyn’s eating scene.

“Brooklyn is the nexus where everything is going on right now,” said Bourdain.

“Brooklyn is a melting pot. There are traditional Jewish delis. Caribbeans are a huge part of the culture.

There was an attempt to embrace the features of what makes the Brooklyn picture.”

Sheepshead Bay got the Hollywood treatment hosting Bourdain and his camera crews at two spots: Jay & Lloyds Kosher Delicatessen on Avenue U and Randazzo’s Clam Bar on Emmons Avenue.

Bourdain also spent time in the borough’s hipster and brownstone pockets eating at Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, the pricy three Michelin-starred restaurant on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill. And at Roberta’s on Moore Street in Bushwick.
