Guest Picks: Danny Meyer

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Restaurateur Danny Meyer was on the Lopate Show's Food Fridays series recently to talk about the food that chefs cook for each other for the family meals at each of his restaurants. He also told us what toppings he puts on his favorite pizza.

What have you read or seen over the past year (book, play, film, etc…) that moved or surprised you?

         Theatre for A New Audience's production of Much Ado About Nothing.  Reminded me of why Shakespeare is the most contemporary stage writer going.  Funny and sad in equal doses.


What are you listening to right now?

            Phoenix.  Excited about their new album, Bankrupt.

What’s the last great book you read?

         When I Lived in Modern Times, by Linda Grant.


What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

          Lexulous, online word game.  When you can't be with the Scrabble players you love.


What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

             Sausage and Mushroom Pizza.  My favorites being from any of three places in New Haven, Ct.
