When Patton Oswalt reached out to Anthony Bourdain to take a look at friends' restaurant recommendations for his recent honeymoon in Paris, the celebrity chef had some brutally honest words of wisdom: "F--k them."
The comedian took to Twitter Sunday to share an email in its entirety from the "Parts Unknown" host, who was found dead in his hotel room in France last Friday after an apparent suicide. Oswalt contacted Bourdain while preparing to travel with wife Meredith Salenger, and he got back a response that pulled no punches.
"I'm a fan and an admirer so gotta tell you this is no way to enjoy Paris," Bourdain wrote. "F--k them. All of them."
He went on to list a few recommendations for Oswalt and his new bride, but advised, "Try and plan as little as possible."
"I love and miss him," Oswalt captioned the post.
When @MeredthSalenger and I honeymooned in Paris our friends & family put together lists of places to eat and things to do. Then I sent those lists to Anthony Bourdain for his input. This was his response. I love and miss him: pic.twitter.com/1YFI7zScz0
Salenger chimed in through the comments section after a Twitter fan mistook her for Oswalt's late wife Michelle McNamara. "I would love to dine with Anthony when my time comes," she tweeted after gently correcting the fan. "We were meant to have dinner before he left."
