Here's an exclusive preview of the season seven premiere of No Reservations, which airs on the Travel Channel at 9PM tonight. In the episode, our hero Anthony Bourdain travels to post-earthquake Haiti at the behest of actor Sean Penn to check out the food and bring some awareness to the country's issues. According to Bourdain, the episode is a somber one and "our friends at eater.com will have difficulty finding a good dick joke." Alas.
In the preview below, Tony travels to a relatively wealthy neighborhood in Port-au-Prince, samples some Haitian Creole food, and wonders why Haiti isn't a "vacation fucking wonderland." Another preview shows Bourdain visiting the tent city of 55,000 people founded and run by Penn, and the crew buying out a roadside stand's food for some hungry kids — with some unfortunate results.
Also, Bourdain will be live-tweeting the premiere tonight, if you're into that kind of thing.
