Chefs Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert riffed off each other like a pair of heckling comedians today at the Arlington. After a homeland security style interrogation of each other as an introduction, the two men sometimes agreed with each other and sometimes played devil's advocate with the other's opinion. Both were clever, eloquent, and still moderately diplomatic after years of fielding silly audience questions.
They weren't very polite with each other, though, dropping f-bombs within minutes of starting. Bottom line: Ripert likes farm to table. Bourdain likes acid and weed. All the women wanted to bed them, while the men wanted to have a drink with them at the Sportsman.
