The ten worst restaurant trends according to happen to be some of the things The Guys think are a good idea. Some of the items sited as "bad trends" include foam, unisex bathrooms, the over use of local and artisinal ingredients, menus with more information on them then can be stored on an I-Pod and fancified raw cuisine. We actually like some of these - especially the use of local and artisinal ingredients.

If you are into wine you really need to visit Eric V. Orange's local wine events web site. This is a great way for diners to find out what is going on wine wise in their local area or any other places you might be visiting.

Food allergies seem to be on the rise. Experts are not quite sure why this is but as a precaution New Jersey's Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS), researchers at Rutgers University's Food Policy Institute and Cook College's Department of Nutritional Sciences have launched the "Ask Before You Eat" Carol Byrd-Bredbenner, PhD. Joins the Guys to talk about the campaign and the importance of understanding the possible dangers of food allergies. The campaign is aimed at both those with food allergies and food service workers.
