We noted last week that chef William Annesley, popping up Thursday with “Bloody Bill’s” in Libertine, has plans for a local place called Fatty’s. He tells The Daily Dish it will be a “Cajun/Creole honky-tonk barbecue” joint with a potential fourth quarter 2010 opening. Annesley already made an attempt in Mid-City before being turned off by liquor license hoops and is now targeting Silver Lake and Hollywood.
Despite being British and running a Spanish restaurant in Louisiana, the bloody one, who promises he personally butchers and cooks the animals he hunts, could easily distinguish himself within this genre. With our favorite Cajun standbys–Harold and Belle’s, New Orleans Cafe, and Uncle Darrow’s sticking closely to authentic family recipes, there’s plenty of room for Cajun comfort that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
