The wines of New Jersey. If you have an opinion about them it better be a good one! Food writer and frequent Restaurant Guys guest Anthony Giglio wrote an article in New Jersey Life magazine recently basically stating that while one or two wineries are on the right track much of New Jersey's wines are "plonk". I guess the 5th amendment doesn't apply to New Jersey. Burlington County NJ vintner Tony Valenzano is suing New Jersey Life Magazine and Anthony Giglio for defamation. What happened to freedom of the press? If a movie critic doesn't like a movie should the film maker sue the critic? Stay tuned as we will follow this developing story.

The Guys welcome Ellen Rodgers, Chief Executive of Coffee Creations for Dunkin' Donuts. Ellen is responsible for coffee buying and flavor creations. We do love their coffee but hey - can we use recyclable cups! All that Styrofoam is filling up our land fills! You can contact them through their website:

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.
