Fatty Crew Takes Over LTO for Five-Course Family-Style Feasts

So now that RJ Cooper’s pop-up is winding down, what’s next for LTO? The incredibly busy folks behind Fatty Crab and ’Cue have announced that they’ll be taking over the venue from May 11 through May 15, and just like they did at Fatty Johnson’s, they’re teaming up with some of the country’s top mixologists. The concept here: For $125 (or $180 with punch pairings by Josh Durr of Hawthorn Beverage Group & Molecurlar Bartending), you get a 7:30 p.m. seating (just one per night) at a table where a slew of family-style dishes will be passed around. Meanwhile, at the downstairs bar (no reservations required), mixologists from Sepia and the Violet Hour in Chicago, Smuggler’s Cove and Cyrus in Northern California, and Rob Roy in Seattle will hold court. Here’s everything you’ll get as part of the five-course feast.
