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

Lindsey Williams

Mark and Francis share some impressions of their visit to Mario Batali's new restaurant, Del Posto. Granted, parties larger than 4 have to jump through hoops to get a reservation, leave a deposit (first born?) and preselect from a limited menu. Still The Guys felt the space was spectacular and the service amongst the best they've experienced in New York City. Del Posto: 85 Tenth Ave. (between 15th and 16th Sts.), New York, NY 10011; 212-497-8090

They guys are joined by Lindsey Williams, grandson of soul food royalty. His grandmother was Sylvia Woods founded Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem in 1962. It is the epicenter of the soul food world in New York City. His book chronicles his childhood raised into the restaurant, the famous people he knew and knows, how he parlayed that into a successful music career and traded that all for his own catering business and his excellent new book: Neo Soul, detailing his healthful take on soul food.

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.
