Tsar Nicolai's Deborah Keane
Have you heard of that new travel guide called Carnet? Mark and Francis think it's the most pretentious thing they have ever seen, surpassed only by the ridiculousness and foppery of its founders, Raquel Brule and Eric de Lavandeyra. Mark has nicknamed them "Creme Brulee and Lavender Man." Follow them as they whine and complain their way around New York, abusing the staff as they go. Not since Lizzie Grubman has anyone given "the good life" such a bad name.
A matter of elegance for real, though, is caviar. With all the pressure on Iranian and Russian caviar stocks and the diminution of quality, quality American caviar has begun to fill the void. Deborah Keane of Tsar Nicoulai joins The Guys to talk about the production and serving of caviar. There are only six sturgeon farms in the world. Tsar Nicoulai is recognized as the world leader in sustainable sturgeon production. It's also Mark and Francis' favorite and what they serve at Stage Left Restaurant.
