No Reservations Returns To Paris For 100th Episode Next Month

The 100-episode mark is a huge milestone for a TV series and the Travel Channel isn’t about to let No Reservations’ big moment go by without some recognition. The popular Anthony Bourdain series will celebrate its 100th episode with a return to Paris.

Anthony Bourdain No Reservations follows chef/author/traveler/New Yorker Anthony Bourdain as he travels around the world sampling food and culture and mingling with the locals. The series has been running since 2005 and has made it to the big 100th episode milestone.

The Travel Channel is set to make a day of the occasion by airing some of the show’s most popular episodes throughout the day on Monday, September 6th, which will followed by a one-hour special titled “What Were They Thinking” and then finally, the 100th episode at 10:00 p.m., which is set to take place in Paris where the series began fifteen years ago.

Below is some information The Travel Channel released on the “What Were They Thinking” special:

The one-hour “What Were We Thinking?” special offers an after-hours look into the past five years of filming NO RESERVATIONS – a world of comical indecision and dysfunction, mixed with heartwarming stories, breathtaking backdrops…and of course, plenty of local libations. Filmed with Bourdain and executive producers, Chris Collins and Lydia Tenaglia, “What Were We Thinking?” takes a light-hearted look back at 100 memorable adventures. Over the course of the day renowned chefs and celebrity fans of the show including David Chang, Eric Ripert, Ted Nugent, Marky Ramone, and Ty Burell will be providing special messages.
