Legendary American chef and travel expert, Anthony Bourdain, will forever have a place in the hearts of food lovers across the globe. Though he passed away in 2018, Bourdain's legacy will be preserved and celebrated in the 2021 documentary, "Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain".

The film explores Bourdain's connection with both food and travel, where he embraced different cultures and lifestyles from around the world. You will see his adventures on the big screen as well as his personal, home life. Several food industry experts, including David Chang, make an appearance in this two-hour visual masterpiece.

The award-winning director of the film, Morgan Neville, described his creation as an "act of therapy for the public". The millions of souls that Bourdain has entertained may be heartbroken, but will now have another chance to celebrate his incredible achievements and appreciate who he was.

"Roadrunner" already premiered at the Tribeca Festival but will hit theatres on the 16th of July, which will also be the three-year anniversary of Bourdain's passing. The film has already achieved 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is no easy feat.

Brasserie Les Halles, the New York restaurant that kickstarted Bourdain's career as a chef, will reopen from July 9 to July 11 in celebration of "Roadrunner". The menu includes French onion soup (or a Provençal entrée if you are vegetarian), steak frites au poivre and dessert.
