What does it mean to be a fishmonger? Or perhaps a sommelier with a podcast? This week on The Morning After Jessie Kiefer and Jen Tullock are figuring it out with Ian MacGregor of The Lobster Place and Levi Dalton of I’ll Drink to That!. First, Jessie and Jen revisit a classic “Front of House” segment. Then, they jump into with Ian- the Chief Fishmonger for The Lobster Place. Find out how Ian’s family industry got him into the business of hocking crustaceans. How has the evolution of New York City’s neighborhoods affected the retail and wholesale food world? Later, Levi chats with Jessie and Jen about drinking wine coolers and reading Wine Spectator. What made Levi take a break from being a full-time sommelier and start his own podcast? Finally, Jen and Jessie wrap up the show with the school lunch edition of “What’s on the Menu at Chardonnay’s?” Thanks to our sponsor, S. Wallace Edwards & Sons, and thanks to Idgy Dean for today’s music!

“The neighborhood of Chelsea had evolved so much that it became evident that I couldn’t keep our wholesale business there. Rolling tractor trailers full of lobsters up 16th street isn’t conducive these days.” [17:00] — Ian MacGregor on The Morning After
