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

Vino-Loc and Skylark Diner

Recently The Guys came across a new kind of wine closure on a favorite wine. The Vino-Loc closure is a glass stopper with a tiny "o" ring that seals a bottle of wine elegantly, without the risks attendant upon cork closures. Noted wine makers like David O'Reilly, who is having a wine dinner at Stage Left later this month, have been giving the Vino-Loc a try. The guys really hate most cork alternatives for one reason or another but they like this one. So they got in touch with the maker, Alcoa. Laura Clarke of Alcoa, joins the guys to discuss this interesting aspect of the wine business.

A diner?? Well, yes. A cool new diner has opened in Edison, New Jersey. The Skylark Diner is a retro cool diner with great food, a bar, a cool vibe and a great setting. Owner Constantine Katsifis joins the guys to talk about his new venture.
