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

Craig Cicciari

California Wine Works

Ever think about making your own wine? Home winemaking is going through a bit of a renaissance. The Guys welcome Craig Cicciari of California Wine Works, located in Ramsey, NJ. Craig consults with his clients to find out what their "dream" wine is. He advises his clients to make the kind of wine they like to drink. He then sources grapes from California including some prestigious vineyards like Stage Coach Vineyard (a source in the past for one of our favorite wine makers, Paul Hobbs). Clients must commit to making at least 1/4 of a barrel and Craig will team you up with other clients to produce a full barrel.

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.
