Hosted by David and Nycci Nellis. On today’s show:

• We welcome Haidar Karoum (formerly of Proof, Estadio, Doi Moi), here to talk about Chloe, his first solo restaurant, at the Navy Yard, along the Southwest waterfront;
• Whisky Live is back. It’s the annual event with unlimited tasting OF 150+ whiskies and more. We’ll be talking to the event’s mastermind, Dave Sweet;

And, speaking of whiskey, we’ll also speak with David Ozgo of the Distilled Spirits Council of the U.S. about a powerful new program rolling out in partnership with Whisky Live to encourage responsible drinking;


• Spark at Engine Company 12 is a new, Caribbean-inspired smokehose in Bloomingdale. Executive chef Peter Prime is in to introduce us to this new venture;

• And it wouldn’t be a proper Foodie and the Beast show without … alcohol! Morris American Bar is the snazzy first concept exclusively from master cocktail craftsman David Strauss. He’s in to mix up some of his signature cocktails.
