WACSO visits Foxy Falafel (pictured above; here’s our review). Midori’s Floating World is literally floating after a burst water pipe. Rick sends off the River Room. A taste of the Lomo de Cerdo of Chef Jorge Guzman of Solera. A preview of Lavvu Coffee House, which will be North America’s only Sami-inspired coffee shop. A throwdown pitting Wisconsin cheese against its Italian counterparts. Andrew Zimmern (correctly) notes that “half the restaurants in the skyway are serving some of the worst food in the city” in the context of a restaurant versus food truck feud downtown.
