"GET JIRO unfolds in a dystopian version of Los Angeles where today's (mostly) polite and academic discussions about food have evolved into grisly gastronomic feuds.... In some ways, GET JIRO represents a coming-full-circle thing for Mr. Bourdain." --The New York Times
"Bourdain ... promised 'an ultra-violent slaughter-fest over culinary arcane, ' and he delivers pretty much exactly that.... Bourdain let's his foodie id run wild, extolling the elegant simplicity of a peasant dish like pot-au-feu here and caving in skulls with saut pans there. Foss' stubby, dough-faced figures walk a fine line between goofy and thuggish, and fall apart with great ickiness when dismembered. Equal parts blunt culinary opinion-mongering and satiric takedown of the very same chef-worship culture Bourdain helped create, this amusing diversion coasts comfortably in the wake of the standard bearer of gore-soaked foodie comics." --Booklist
