Mark and Francis talk about the new rating system implemented by the New York times regional section. What once was a two star rating (a good rating in Mark and Francis' mind) is reduced to OK in a pinch.
Nicholas Harary, a repeat guest on the show and Chef / Owner of Restaurant Nicholas in Middletown NJ returns to discuss the release of his new book: Nicholas: The Cookbook. The recipes are from his 4 star restaurant yet written for the home cook. The book also features beautiful photographs as well as insights into Nicholas' road to success from humble beginnings.
