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

Nicholas Harary

Nicholas Harary is one of the most highly regarded chefs in New Jersey--and that's not just Mark and Francis' opinion but also that of the New York Times, which recently said that very thing in the national food section. This is unprecedented for a chef cooking in NJ. "Nobody was more shocked than I" says Nicholas. He joins the guys to talk about operating outside New York, his newfound fame. The guys dish about restaurant reality shows and the finer points of service.

Nicholas and his wife Melissa are currently expanding their restaurant in Middletown, NJ (just outside of Redbank). Not only are Nicholas, Melissa, Francis and Mark friends and colleagues, but Restaurant Nicholas is also Mark and Francis' favorite restaurant in New Jersey (aside from their own of course).

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.
