A Restaurant Guy

Julie Reiner

Julie Reiner, owner of The Flatiron Lounge, was born in Hawaii and worked as a cocktail server prior to moving to San Francisco, and ultimately Manhattan. She calls her style of drink-making "new-age tropical." When Julie moved to New York City and was hired as head bartender at C3 Lounge in the Washington Square Hotel, she began to experiment with her fresh fruit specials.

Julie's program at Flatiron Lounge includes weekly cocktail flights in 2 1/2 ounce Martini glasses nicely presented on a small wooded tray with cutouts for the glasses. The flights sometimes feature spirit categories and are at other times themed. Julie's menu always has a tributes section that pays homage to great drinks from her favorite bartenders over the years.

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.
