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

Summer Beverages and Summer Wines

Mark and Francis rant about artificial flavors and "fake food". Ever notice that grape soda doesn't take anything like grapes? Beware of High Fructose Corn Syrup (your Grandmother never used it). It is designed to make you want to drink or eat more of it (makes you fat and makes the food conglomerates rich!). Instead of fake flavor try some delicious beverages for summer. Mark and Francis recommend a light rose for summer - particularly Etude Rose (available at Stage Left). This is a light, crisp wine made from Pinot Noir with a little amount of residual sugar. Mark also recommends Moscato d'Asti; a sparkling Italian wine low in alcohol, slightly sweet. Perfect for summer brunch (typically $10 - $15 per bottle)

For a beverage try old fashioned lemonade or a watermelon martini (see our recipes link).

The Restaurant Guys

Who Are The Restaurant Guys? Every week, Francis Schott and Mark Pascal host the Restaurant Guys, a show that's as informative as it is fun. Francis and Mark own Stage Left Restaurant in the heart of New Brunswick's theatre district, and, along with their expertise in a wide range of fine dining and wine matters, they bring to the table humor and intelligent conversation, perfect for the midday listener. The show includes discussions and interviews with famous chefs, restaurateurs, wine and food writers, critics; and the Guys even give stuff away occasionally.
