Anthony Bourdain Leaves Bulk Of His Estate to His 11-Year-Old Daughter

The bulk of the Parts Unknown host’s $1.21 million estate is going to his 11-year-old daughter, Ariane Bourdain, according to Manhattan Surrogate Court documents, via the New York Daily News.

The chef-turned-TV personality had $425,000 in savings and cash at the time of his death. Additionally, he had $35,000 in brokerage funds, $250,000 in personal property and another $500,000 in “intangible property including royalties and residuals.”


The docs also reveal that a guardian of the estate will be chosen by the court to keep Ariane’s inheritance safe, as she is a minor. Bourdain’s estranged wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, was chosen as the executor of his estate. He left her all his “personal and household effects” to “ dispose of in accordance with what (she) believes to have been my wishes.” This includes items like cars and furniture.

The court documents also reveal that Bourdain had a $1.1 million mortgage, but the exact property is not stated.

If Ariane were to die, her father’s estate would pass to her nanny, a woman named Myra Quizon, according to the will.

Bourdain took his life on June 8 at his hotel in Kaysersberg, France, where he was filming his CNN show.
