Though it only reopened last April after being closed for more than a year, the troubled Williamsburg location of Fatty ‘Cue will close this coming Monday, November 25. What’s going to go in its place? The Fatty Crew tells Grub Street that the Brooklyn space will continue to operate as Fatty Lab, “an experimental venue used to develop new concepts, hold private events, and pop-ups.” But all is not lost for lovers of smokey eggplant and Asian-accented slow-cooked pork: The West Village ‘Cue location will be unaffected by the move. In an e-mailed statement, the Fatty Crew says, “We sincerely thank our loyal patrons for their continued support, and look forward to serving them in the future at Fatty ‘Cue West Village, Fatty Crab and future Fatty Crew concepts to be announced in the near future.”
