If you missed the craveRADIO broadcast this past Sunday you missed a lot. In studio this week we enjoyed all the interesting stories Gene and Julie Gates shared about opening their restaurant Battuto Italian Kitchen in North Dallas.  Gene also shared his history of working, managing and owning restaurants in his past, before Battuto and before their radio history.

The pair of restaurant owners also discussed their opening chef Gustavo, and all the work that went into the opening menu. They have since hired super chef Joel Harloff who has a beautiful history working with Italian and other cuisines. Harloff is working on a new lunch menu and sends out daily specials that we hear are terrific.

Also on the program we enjoyed seeing the State Fair of Texas fried food king, Isaac Rousso who owns the Taste of Cuba food concession at the Fair. Rousso is also running the new Draught House that replaces SportHalle that encompasses the Conference Center. He will also be selling many of his past food items including his famous Cuban sandwich and the meaty Pork Wings he introduced last year at the Fair.

Also on the program we had John Slaughter from Paulaner, the original Oktoberfest brew that is now the official beer at the Addison festival. Paul speaks about the history of the beer, and great details about this year’s Oktoberfest in Addison.
