I imagined an America conquered by the Borg-like blandness of the awkwardly named Crepes a Latte the Cafe, strapped in for the Italian-Polish collision of Flo & Santos Pizza & Pub, settled into Floriole Cafe & Bakery's brick-and-mortar HQ, and lamented the indignities done to my favorite animal at the Piggery. Anne Spiselman thinks the Ritz's new Deca Restaurant + Bar comes close but fails to deliver the stogie, and Rendezvous Bistro can't justify its own cliches.
Kate Schmidt says the second Al Primo Canto is the sorry younger sibling of the first, and the "mutant" "Ameri-Mex" at Dos Diablos left David Hammond down in the dumps. Finally, Cliff Doerksen thinks Lakeview's Pizzeria Serio needs remedial training, and Izidora Angel finds wine pairings for nearly everything on the menu at Vintage 338.
