Episode 48 - Ben and Daniel Berg of Carmelo's and B&B Butchers
On today's episode of What's Eric Eating CultureMap food editor Eric Sandler is joined by frequent co-host Mary Clarkson the owner of L'Olivier. Eric and Mary discuss some of the latest news from the Houston restaurant and bar scene including, 3 new concepts opening in Houston, Food & Wine's restaurants of the year list, the I'll Have What She's Having Gala, and more! No restaurants are featured in this week's restaurants of the week portion (blame it on the cold/flu) so instead Eric asks... what food do you crave most when you're feeling under the weather?
Then in the Guest of the Week segment, brought to you by 8th Wonder Brewery, Eric is joined by Ben and Daniel Berg of Carmelo's and B&B Butchers. Eric and the Berg brothers discuss what brought Daniel down to Houston from New York, why Ben purchased Carmelo's, the pasta stipulations of the agreement, updating the menu at Carmelo's, customer reactions to the restaurant, the addition of B&B Butchers in Fort Worth, the latest details on their new project Benjamin's including a possible timeline for the opening, and the vaunted What's Eric Eating... lightning round!
