Interview with Mike Cioffi, Owner of the Phoenicia Diner

For the sixth anniversary of my radio show, I’m turning some of my interviews with the most interesting guests into podcasts. Click on the orange arrow above to hear the podcast.

On Christmas 2014, I interviewed Mike Cioffi of the now famous Phoenicia Diner in Phoenicia on Route 28 in the Catskills. Mike was a fantastic guest talking about growing up in Brooklyn, his love of food, running a business and how he set up the diner.

The Phoenicia Diner was just recently voted the best small-town restaurant in New York State by Thrillist and continues to be one of the most popular – if not the most popular – restaurants in the Catskills. Every day it’s open it is packed with a full parking lot.
