Larry Stone

The coveted Master Sommelier degree is held by fewer than 80 Americans. When the MS was conferred on dynamic and talented Larry Stone, he was the just the seventh American Master Sommelier. He has helped to shape the increasing professionalism of sommeliers, restaurant service and the wine industry in general ever since. He has won two Grand Awards in his career, one for Charlie Trotter in Chicago and now for Rubicon, in San Francisco which he owns with Drew Nieporent.

Larry joins The Guys to talk about his personal love of food and wine, his trail-blazing work and wine in the world today. Larry was recently appointed to The Board of The James Beard Foundation. He talks about that group, overcoming its recent troubles and the valuable contributions it is poised to make.

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.
