A Candid Conversation with Anoosh Shariat, And Special Eats of the Week

On the EatDrinkTalk podcast, join us for a candid, heartfelt conversation with culinary legend Anoosh Shariat about his battle with Cancer and what that means for his restaurants and staff.

Shariat said his main concern is making sure his staff at both restaurants (Anoosh Bistro and Noosh Nosh) understand that even though he’s undergoing treatment, the restaurants are operating and their jobs are safe. In fact, he recently brought in Chef Mark Ford to help continue his culinary tradition, with an emphasis on healthy eating.

Carolyn nearly forgot her Eat of the Week choice, but came through to describe some delish dishes at Naive. Rick ventured west to Porkland, a community restaurant that’s making new in Portland.

It’s a bit of a slow news week, but we noticed the new bar in Butchertown, ALEX&NDER, in the Copper & Kings building. We also¬† speculate about the chances of the region’s 2nd Ax-Throwing concept, opening soon in Clarksville.

We’ve got more tickets to the Russell Dickerson show coming Friday to Fourth Street Live!, so listen in to learn how to win.
