MAN, W.Va. — A celebrity chef found a place at the table in a local restaurant Thursday night.

Chef, author and television personality Anthony Bourdain stopped at Keith’s Bar and Grill in Man to shoot a segment for the CNN show he is currently the host of, “Parts Unknown.”

Keith Gamble, owner of the restaurant, posted his gratitude for Bourdain’s stop on Facebook.

“Keith’s wants to give a big shout out to Anthony Bourdain for allowing Keith’s Bar and Grille to be part of his show Parts Unknown,” Gamble wrote. “The film crew was awesome. Thanks to our customers who came out and showed their support.”

Bourdain sent out a series of Tweets about his time in the mountain state, including his visit to an underground mine.

“This place moves me like very, very few other places,” Bourdain wrote. “And I been everywhere. #WestVirginia.”

Bourdain also wrote the experience of being in the state, despite being surrounded by people who “don’t vote the way I vote or value what I value in the same way,” was “incredible.”

The segment featuring Keith’s Bar and Grille is set to air in April as one of the first episode of the next season of “Parts Unknown.”
