MiMo/Biscayne Corridor's culinary scene is blowing up with the addition of Taperia Raca later this month.
Rapicavoli and Casanova to take on MiMo.

In fact the "Raca" in the title of the duo's new concept is derived from a melding of the first two letters of each of their last names.
About a year ago, Rapicavoli teased diners with the announcement that he wanted to open a second concept -- although at the time the talented young chef was thinking about a cocktail lounge and doughnut shop.
