“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

Patrick O'Connell

Chef/Owner, The Inn at Little Washington

The Inn at Little Washington is considered one of the finest places to stay and dine in the world. Years ago, Mark and Francis enjoyed a couple of evenings there and they feel it was extraordinary. Chef/Owner Patrick O'Connell started as an actor before becoming an internationally acclaimed Chef. He believes that being a Chef is a more exciting theatrical experience. He sees each night in his restaurant as "a little film" and each guest as the start of that film. Such attention to details as boutonnieres for gentlemen and accessing and tracking guests' moods are his hallmark. His book, "Patrick O'Connell's Refined American Cuisine" is absolutely beautiful.

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.
