Have they declared suicide? The last sources I looked at...

did not say cause of death and suicide was only speculated.

I toasted Mr. Bourdain last month during my trip to NYC when I finally made it to the Heidelberg on the Upper East Side. He just went off on this place.

And I finally had real German food in an American German restaurant. This had never happened before in all my travels (an I am casting evil eyes at you Fredericksburg, Texas and your foul excuses of German cuisine--hey let's douse it in vinegar!!! That's German!!!).

We toasted Anthony Bourdain with our liter steins of beer for guiding us to this place. And what a line-up of German beers they have on draught!!!

I searched for the video of his show at the Heidelberg, there was even a link on their web site to it, and it is now gone!!!, and I cannot find it anywhere.

Anyway, if you want to visit Munich for a few hours while visiting Gotham City, go the Heidelberg. It may have been formerly a Palatinate-Baden (the German country where Heidelberg was located in those days) restaurant when it opened in 1909, but it is now a full-blown 19th Century Kingdom of Bavaria (the old titles before the German Empire was formed) restaurant.

Go visit before they are gone. Glaser's, the last of the three German shops left in the old Manhattan German town where the Heidelberg is located closed on June 1. So sad.

And do order the Full-Bavarian Schweinshax'n with a liter of one of their amazing beers on draught. Authentic.
