This week on craveRADIO we hosted Top Chef and owner of Spoon Bar and Kitchen  in Dallas, John Tesar. Tesar always makes for a good guest as he is never short on conversation. This proved for a lively first hour before he had to run off to his cheffing gig at the restaurant.

Tesar talked about his early days in New York, which of course included plenty of Bourdain spills, along with how he made the journey to Texas.  


Next in the lineup we discussed hormone replacement therapy with Terri Suresh from Hormonal Health and Wellness Center in Southlake. Our host Kenny uses the services and claims to be able to fight off mountain lions now that his hormones are in check. In all seriousness, Kenny lost weight, experienced muscle grown and has a renewed energy to take on his front of the house restaurant duties.


In the second hour we also had one of North Texas’ best barmen, Brad Hensarling in the house mixing up palomas for Cinco de Mayo. This had the crew in a frenzy. Brad is best known for his three bars in Fort Worth that include The Usual, The Gold Standard and the Chat Room. The Usual is his nod to high end cocktailing where he implements old school technique and flair. The Chat room is within walking distance and is more of a dive, replete with pool table and good beer. The latest in the Hensarling fold is The Gold Standard which is a good mix of all Hensarling’s bars and features its own food park out back for convenient dining.

Uno Immanivong sat in once again as guest host. We love having her sit in when she can as she offers spirited conversation to the mix.


Next Sunday is Mother’s Day and we will not be offering a new show. Actually, they will be retooling and upgrading the studio equipment, so we will see you on the 19th.

Missed the show? No problem, listen in here:
