Peter Schleimer

Austrian Restaurant Critic and Wine Writer

Mark and Francis welcome their old friend, Austrian Restaurant Critic and Wine Writer Peter Schleimer to the show to talk about the food and wine scene in Austria and Austrian food and wine in America. Many Austrian wines are age worthy and food friendly, particularly with hard to pair foods such as salads and vegetables. One of the more popular Austrian white wines is Gruner Veltliner--a versatile wine that could be made in a light and fresh style or in a full-bodied, ripe and concentrated style. Peter recommends wines from three top producers: Schloss Gobelsburg, Walter Glatzer, and Heidi Schrock.

For a taste of Austria, The Guys recommend using Elderflower Syrup and Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil. Contact for information on purchasing these delicious products that can a special touch to many of your dishes.

For a taste of Austrian closer to home, Mark and Francis recommend the following three restaurants in New York City:

Danube (30 Hudson St., between Duane and Reade Sts. (TriBeCa); 212-791-3771), which recently received two stars in the first Michelin guide to New York

Thor (107 Rivington Street; 212-796-8040)

Wallse (344 West 11th St; 212-352-2300)

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.
