Watch Anthony Bourdain Talk Cronuts


As promised, Anthony Bourdain filled in for Piers Morgan last night, guest-hosting Morgan's chat show. As for the guests: Bourdain called up old friends David Simon and David Carr, as well as Mario Batali and Bourdain BFF Eric Ripert. He also talked what else? cronuts with Dominique Ansel and Grub's very own Hugh Merwin. (Apparently the promise of a cronut is what lured Simon up from Baltimore, but even the creator of The Wire couldn't actually get his hands on full one. Simon, on his blog: "Tony Bourdain, you lying sonofabitch, you owe me a motherfucking cronut.") Ahead, watch as Bourdain tries his own first cronut and polls the audience to see if it's better than Ansel's original best-selling pastry, the DKA.
