Flyover Friday - Raking Leaves, Vol. 6

Mike Sula's review of Swift & Sons for Chicago's Reader

Lindsay Christians' review of A-OK, Barolo, and Julep for Madison's Capital Times - Listen. You have to give Christians props for, if nothing, the massive amount of intake required to review three operations for one week's filing.

G.A. Benton's review of Secret Vessel Hot Pot Restaurant for the Columbus Dispatch

Linda Falkenstein's review of Cafe Hollander for Madison's Isthmus - After my one trip to Cafe Hollander (two if you count the one where we didn't eat because it wasn't entirely clear if we were welcome to enter or not), I can say I'm happy I didn't review the place. It's loud, and it's mediocre. Another kind of hollow effort IMO, not too far afield from World of Beer. More food-forward, but not much better.

Samara Kalk Derby's review of Julep for Madison's Wisconsin State Journal - Derby, like any sane critic (Lindsay), only took on one location in the Robinia Courtyard restaurant complex.

Kevin Pang's review of Ruxbin for the Chicago Tribune - Or not! Damned if I know.
