It's been about a year now since New Jersey TV Personality and Chef Anthony Bourdain took his own life while filming in France. Following Bourdain's death, there was a push to develop a "Food Trail" highlighting eateries that Bourdain loved here in the Garden State. According to a recent northjersey.com article, the food trail is the creation of Assemblyman Paul Moriarty (D-Gloucester), Assemblywoman Carol Murphy (D-Burlington), and Assemblywoman Angela McKnight (D-Hudson).

The Trail kicks off today and Friday with Bourdain's Brother Chris attending in Fort Lee along with other dignitaries elsewhere. Several stops are right here in Ocean & Monmouth Counties.

  • 10:30 a.m., Hiram’s Roadstand, 1345 Palisade Ave. in Fort Lee
  • 2 p.m., Frank's Deli, 1406 Main St. in Asbury Park
