In an essay written after fellow chef Mario Batali was accused of sexual assault, Bourdain wrote that "one must pick a side".
"I stand unhesitatingly and unwaveringly with the women", he wrote on in a 2017 essay on Medium. He was my love, my rock, my protector.

According to Chef Wan, Bourdain described him as "larger than life".
"I came here to share the grief of the loss of such a talented chef. he was such a special person because he had such a great passion for Vietnamese food", customer Nguyen Quan told AFP. The "360°" host teared up as he discussed his friend, saying that referring to Bourdain in the past tense is "really hard to imagine". "They didn't even look at their menu".

The waiter, Maxime Voinson, told The New York Times, "Maybe he went out and ate somewhere else, we said".
