To @Bourdain : the next time you're in Vegas....hit me up and I'll make sure you suffer no atrocious alimentary affronts...— John Curtas (@eatinglasvegas) July 17, 2012
Here's how Ottavia responded to Curtas' original article:
Before Anthony nails more bad intel:
And vegas.eater.com/archives/2012/… gets it wrong, too.— Anthony Bourdain (@Bourdain) July 17, 2012
Eater Vegas. We DID eat at Carnevino. enjoyed it. A lot. Does anybody check timeline or pick up a phone before "reporting" anymore?— Anthony Bourdain (@Bourdain) July 17, 2012
And, then John tweets back for some more:
@OttaviaBourdain No offense intended, but not naming your "worst steak ever" sullies all places unfairly. Better to say nothing.— John Curtas (@eatinglasvegas) July 17, 2012
So, is it over or is more to come? We know one thing for sure, we're never forgetting to pick up more microwave popcorn at the store ever again.
7.19 Update: Eater Vegas reports that Charlie Palmer Steak gets the hair shirt on this one. Here's Anthony Bourdain's response:
Charlie Palmer, you are a gracious man and a great chef. As we all know, sometimes shit happens. Thanks.— Anthony Bourdain (@Bourdain) July 18, 2012
