Tiny Kitchen, Big Flavor: Behind the Scenes at Facundo Cafe

You have a captive audience at a car wash like Dr. Gleem, especially one that also does oil changes and detailing services and a host of other services, so why not offer that audience something more to eat than vending-machine food Facundo Cafe could very easily turn out bowling alley-style food and people would buy it. But chef Danny Harper rises above the location, the low expectations and the shticky gimmick of being a "car wash restaurant." Facundo Cafe is a destination in its own right. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
