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

Tim Olson

Winemaker/Partner, Olson Ogden Wines, CA

Tim is not nearly as well-known a winemaker as he should be. We have been friends with Tim from about 1999. We have watched him progress from home winemaker to garagiste to small production commercial winemaker of the highest order. His new wines are tremendous and those first wines from 1999 drinking so beautifully they’ll make you cry. Tim joins us and traces his journey from amateur wine lover to actual commercial winemakers. He has crossed paths with many of the top winemakers and grape producers in California. His story is inspiring and his wines are delicious.

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.
