Beth Aretsky, aka Grill Bitch, has been a long time associate and friend of Anthony Bourdain. She is immortalized in Bourdain’s book “Kitchen Confidential,” in which she is considered one of the guys and not likely to put up with any nonsense. Beth presently partners with chef Michael Pardus in operating My Lucky Noodles Ramen Shop.
Beth worked with Tony for more than 20 years, both in the kitchen and as his personal assistant. In 2005, Anthony gave Beth the rights to trademark his logo and slogan to produce t-shirts.
With the horrifying news of Tony’s untimely death, Beth is continuing to sell the t-shirts and is donating 30% of all sales to The National Suicide Prevention Center to continue his legacy and help others in need.
