This weeks edition of Foodie & the Beast kicked off with someone who has a green thumb, Kristof Grina – he’s the co-founder of Up Top Acres, specializing in bringing underutilized commercial spaces – rooftops, mostly – to life, with fruits, vegetables, flowers, and even bee-keeping. Chef/owner Victor Albisu’s joined Nycii and David to chat about Del Campos departure and the arrival of two concepts in the same space – Vic’s taco spot, Taco Bamba, and a truly great new upscale Mexican restaurant, Poca Madre. Alos in was Michael Iglesias Poca Madre’s director – he developed and curated a spectacular program with more than 90 rare mezcals. Amy Riolo was in with tastes and talk from her new cookbook Quick Diabetic Recipes for Dummies, and to discuss the central importance of maintaining a diabetes-friendly meal plan, even if you don’t have diabetes!
