A Washington radio staple since 2008 on 1500AM Sundays at 11:00 a.m., Foodie and the Beast – starring Nycci and David Nellis, cohosts of the DC area’s one and only, food and wine variety show – has come to Full Service Radio as Industry Night with Foodie and the Beast. While the broadcast version of the show has brief segments featuring locally, nationally and globally renowned chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, somms, distiller, brewmasters, pitmasters and much more, Industry Night with Foodie and the Beast will be a long-talk formatted show, with in-depth looks at trends and trendmakers across the landscape for edibles, potables, hospitality and more.
This show records and broadcasts LIVE on Full Service Radio from the lobby of the LINE DC in Adams Morgan, Washington DC.
It’s a family affair!
Industry Night with Foodie and the Beast host Gladys Abi-Najm, Grace Abi-Najm Shea and their brother, Dany for a deep dive into the story and the glory of DC’s fabulous, Lebanese Taverna. Launched by their dad and his kids, it started as a one-stop, suburban pizza and sub shop in the ‘70s and has grown into an 11-restaurant chain stretching across DC, Maryland and Virginia with more coming. And, on the way to today’s success, Lebanese Taverna brought Mediterranean cuisine center stage in the DC area and helped make “hummus,” “kibbeh” and “labneh” household words and refrigerator “must haves.”
Join us for a deep dive into the Lebanese Taverna success story and to live vicariously as we taste some truly awesome, Lebanese wines!
