It's a Foss Family Affair with Food Trucks

Since it's technically illegal for food trucks to roam the streets of Chicago, one culinary-focused family has decided to jump into the next big trend: the pop-up restaurant.

Phillip Foss—who's better known as the executive chef of Lockwood—and his wife, Kenni, have forged forward with their Foss Family Food Trucks concept.

For one day only, 8am-8pm August 15, they're taking over the brick-and-mortar location for the Gaztro-Wagon Restaurant in Edgewater.

The Foss family will use this opportunity to debut several of their food-truck dishes, which of course, are made from all homemade ingredients.
