Anthony Bourdain Has an Open Job to Fill and It's Every Food Lover's Dream
Anthony Bourdain is looking for a new right-hand man.
Stephen Werther, a New York retail entrepreneur, told Eater that he is stepping down as CEO of Bourdain Market, the Singapore-style food hall that Bourdain will open in New York City within the coming years.
No new CEO for the project has been announced, so this could be someone’s golden opportunity. For those who have always dreamed of becoming a close companion of the intrepid chef/traveler/writer, now’s the time to dust off resumes and get out the Rolodex.
Unfortunately there isn’t an online portal where candidates can submit their CVs. Anyone who wants to develop the project alongside Bourdain will have to do some heavy networking. May we suggest starting the job search by delving into our vast files of all things Anthony Bourdain?
Although it’s still unclear what the qualifications for the position may be, if they include an almost cult-like fanaticism for all things Bourdain, there’s a chance that binge-watching every episode of "Parts Unknown" could be an excellent career move. Just be warned: Competition is bound to be fierce.
Bourdain announced the food hall back in 2015 and after a few pushbacks in opening, it is now scheduled to premiere to the public in 2019 and will bring authentic food stalls from all over the world straight to the piers of New York City.
However there have been many delays in the project. Reportedly, Bourdain has yet to sign a lease with developers — making the future of Bourdain Market uncertain.
