Stephen Starr Taking Fatty Crab National, Beginning With Washington, D.C.

Peoria-bound. (Maybe in 2015!)

Energetic Buddakan and Hybird restaurateur Stephen Starr is teaming up with Fatty Crew's Rick Camac on a new plan to open Fatty Crab restaurants in eight U.S. cities and one in London, Crain's reports. Although chef and cofounder Zakary Pelaccio has his hands full with the innovative Fish & Game in Hudson, the paper reports he may do some recipe consulting before the first of the new Fatty's opens in D.C. sometime in the next three to six months.
