Charlie LeDuff Book
Charlie LeDuff Anthony Bourdain
LeDuff woke up in Denver to the news that his friend and onetime collaborator Anthony Bourdain was gone.
“Detroit should know it lost a true friend,” LeDuff said of the cultural icon who was found dead Friday of an apparent suicide in France at 61. “He had a real love for the city and its people.”
LeDuff said he’d gotten to know the late chef, writer and TV star over the years. Bourdain’s mother, Gladys, was his copy editor during the Detroit journalist’s stint at the New York Times. And Tony – as everyone called him – was a fan of LeDuff’s 2013 book on the Motor City’s decline, “Detroit: An American Autopsy.”
So when Bourdain’s CNN travel show “Parts Unknown” came to town that year, LeDuff played local guide, taking the crew to a home-style barbecue on the east side and tagging along with the Detroit Fire Department.
Charlie LeDuff Coney Island
Since 2016, LeDuff has been an employee of American Coney Island diner, working as the restaurant’s handyman, while writing a book on the side.
A Coney Island is a type of restaurant that is popular in the northern United States, particularly in Michigan, as well as the name for the Coney Island hot dog after which the restaurant style is named.
The menu of all Coney Island restaurants centers on the Coney Island hot dog, which is a natural-casing hot dog in a steamed bun dressed with chili, diced onions, and yellow mustard. This item is usually referred to simply as a “coney.” Another popular item on most Coney Island restaurant menus is the “loose hamburger,” which consists of crumbled ground beef in a hot dog bun, covered in the same condiments as a Coney Island hot dog. Many Coney Islands also serve “chili fries,” which are french fries covered in chili, sometimes with mustard, onions and/or cheese added.
