Best Stories About Wine and Food 2014 | Stay True Radio | Food & Drink | Phoenix

You probably know at least one or two things about Pavle Milic. One could be that he's part of the dynamic duo that runs Scottsdale's FnB. The other is that he is one of the biggest advocates of Arizona-made wine. What you might not know is that he also is co-founder of My AZ Now Radio, where he hosts his podcast, Stay True Radio. The show is a lot about local wine, with guests like Sam Pillsbury, Maynard James Keenan, and Todd Bostock. However, since it began airing in September 2013, Milic also has talked shop with a cicerone, a tattoo artist, a gallery owner, and a chicken farmer. If you want to learn a little more about the local food and beverage scene, Milic's Stay True Radio show is the way to go.

Second Story Liquor Bar owner Tommy Plato says his chic new restaurant aims to tell a story. And he's not kidding. Everything from the servers' Mad Men-inspired duds to the restaurant's website ties into his storytelling theme. That even includes Chef Josh Bracher's cuisine, which is organized into acts on the restaurant's seasonal menu. You'll start your dinner with a selection from the Intro category, before moving along to heartier fare in the Prologue, Plot, and Finale segments of the carte du jour. What's more, each time Bracher switches things up, the new menu constitutes an "episode" of Second Story's show. If the food and drinks weren't so good, we'd have to roll our eyes at how seriously this restaurant takes its dramatic theme.
