World Street Kitchen's brick-and-mortar space "quietly" opened this past weekend

The Twittersphere ran rampant this weekend with word of Uptown's newly opened World Street Kitchen. The new restaurant is based off of chef Sameh Wadi's locally renowned World Street Kitchen food truck, which serves a collision of global street foods incorporating Wadi's Mediterranean influences.

Chef Sameh Wadi and his brother Saed Wadi are responsible for local favorite Saffron Restaurant & Lounge in downtown Minneapolis. Chef Wadi was also a contestant (the youngest in the competition's history) on the Food Network's popular Iron Chef America.

The restaurant is at 2743 Lyndale Ave. S. in Uptown.
