This week on The Speakeasy we celebrate episode number 100 with special guests, The Franks! Frank Falcinelli and Frank Castronovo of Frankies and Prime Meats are here with host Damon Boelte, to talk about their latest project – RES, an artist residency for chefs, where chefs from around the world can present their work,their very best work, to the audience of New York without being rushed or stressed. Located on the the historic Brooklyn waterfront, RES is about creating a place where a chef can present their work exactly how they want it to be, while exploring the city, meeting colleagues, and working on their repertoire. The Franks also talk cocktails, and how fresh ingredients make a huge difference when creating an eye-opening drink for your customers. Ever wondered who Damon’s bartending influence comes from? Learn more from the legendary Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli today! Congratulations to Damon on his 100th show. This program has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch. Thanks to Brothers NYC for today’s music.

“We want the guest to experience what’s on the mind of the chef.” [9:05]
