Fatty ’Cue Williamsburg Closed (But Not for Good)

The team at Fatty ‘Cue Brooklyn closed the restaurant’s back dining room in October to address “structural issues,” and now we hear the whole place is closed for business. But fear not, lovers of master fat and brisket-filled bao: A rep for Fatty Crew says the closing is only temporary, and that the goal is to reopen the whole restaurant by March 15 after a complete renovation. So does this mean the Williamsburg spot will go slightly more upscale, à la the newer West Village location? There was no official confirmation or denial of this theory, but it certainly sounds like it’s a possibility. [Earlier]
