June 19, 2018 - 4:58 pm

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New Jersey is looking to honor renowned chef Anthony Bourdain with a food trail of some of his favorite restaurants in the state.

The esteemed chef took his own life nearly two weeks ago in a hotel room in France. Though born in New York, the cook and writer grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey.

To honor the Jersey native, Democratic New Jersey Assemblyman Paul Moriarty proposed a resolution on Monday to have the Travel and Tourism Division implement the "Anthony Bourdain Food Trail." The trail would consist of the 10 establishments in New Jersey that Bourdain, 61, visited in a 2015 episode of the show he hosted, CNN's "Parts Unknown".

Donkey's Place in Camden will be included in the path of eateries, as Bourdain once said its cheesesteaks were on par with Philadelphia's.
