You've certainly heard the terrible news by now that New Jersey native and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has passed at the age of 61.

In his 5 years on CNN, his show "Parts Unknown" stopped in his home state a number of times, including a trio of nearby Jersey Shore spots.

Tony hit up LBI twice, with a stop at Kubel's in Barnegat Light as well as a meal at Lucille's Country Cooking in Barnegat.

He spent a lot of time in Asbury Park too, gushing about the outstanding music scene to go along with the fantastic food.

Frank's Deli on Main Street in Asbury was his choice stop for, "A classic Jersey sandwich, with layers of sliced ham, provolone, tomato, onions, shredded lettuce, roasted peppers, oil, and vinegar".

Other Jersey towns that got some love on "Parts Unknown" included Fort Lee, Camden, and of course Atlantic City. You can check out the full list of NJ restaurants that were featured on the show by clicking here.
