After losing its space at Trinity Groves just a few short months ago, permanent pop-up Kitchen LTO has officially been resurrected.
Announced via release, Kitchen LTO will reopen at 2901 Elm Street early next week. In keeping with the concept’s revolving door of up-and-coming talents, the restaurant will continue to rotate a new executive chef into the kitchen every six months, and you’ll be able to catch an intimate glimpse into the kitchen and watch the restaurant’s prepare your dinner while enjoying a cocktail.
First up in the kitchen is Chef Josh Harmon, a Tennessee native whose spent time at NYC’s Buddakan, and Grace in Fort Worth. Harmon earned praise from critics at The Milk & Honey Co. before leaving the restaurant in 2013. Most recently, Harmon developed the menu at Grapevine’s Main Street Bistro & Bakery.
The new Kitchen LTO will, in some ways, be different than its predecessor. When Kitchen LTO was located at Trinity Groves, diners would vote on their favorite new chef at a tasting party. That process has since been discarded, and owner Casie Caldwell (along with her management team) will choose a new chef for the concept every six months.
Kitchen LTO is set to debut on Tuesday, October 25. The restaurant will be open for dinner service on Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Brunch will be available on Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 a.m., and lunch service is expected to join the lineup in the coming weeks.
