Rick Tramonto

. . . and Cell Phones in Theatres

Rick Tramonto's 25-year restaurant career has been a climb to the stars. "Tramonto is a blend of mad scientist and magician in the kitchen. He is innovative, creative and somewhat an illusionist," says Pat Bruno of the Chicago Sun-Times. His flagship restaurant, Tru, was just nominated for a James Beard Award for service. Chef Tramonto talks to The Guys about the hallmarks of fine service, dealing delicately when one set of diners may impinge upon on the experience of other diners (think loud cell phone use). They also talk about managing multiple restaurant and balancing family life.

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.
