Matthew Kuscher, the owner of Lokal in Coconut Grove, has a commitment to quality that is unmatched: he's tapping Floridian farmers, dairies and brewers in order to highlight the bounty of products, goods and ingredients available in the Sunshine State. In plain English, LoKal will be as local as local gets -- including Kuscher's ability to order 'by the alligator' and know exactly which cow is about to be his hamburger.

"We really know exactly where all our products are coming from," he told Chat Chow. "It's something I believe in a lot."

Watch above as Kuscher discusses foodie trends, burgers topped with guava, his childhood donut training, and making sick dogs feel better.
