A Restaurant Guy

“I’ve told so many people that [Restaurant Guys Radio] is basically Car Talk for Food, and I mean that in the most positive way. I don’t know how often you guys listen to Car Talk but that’s quite a compliment.” >> Listen: hi | lo

Anthony Giglio

Francis is psyched! Jamon Iberico is coming!! This special ham, made from the Iberian black footed pig, gets its unique flavor from the pigs diet: acorns. Up to now this product could not be imported as the U.S. requires imported meat to be slaughtered in USDA certified facilities. Spain now has one. This beautiful ham is aged and so it won't be available for two years. Anthony Giglio is a noted journalist. He's restaurant critic for New Jersey Life Magazine, The New York Sun and the wine columnist for Boston Magazine. He's written the book Cocktails in New York and he is currently completely revising the Mr. Boston Guide. Anthony writes in a vivid style, pulling readers in with details as if telling a story around the campfire. The Guys and Anthony relive one of his most memorable experiences. A restaurant called "973" (named after an area code - go figure) where the waiter was so bad that he actually took a cell phone call tableside. Anthony quipped, "If only I had the waiter's cell phone number I'd have asked for the check."
