The announcement that restaurateur Casie Caldwell’s "permanent pop-up" restaurant Kitchen LTO had abruptly closed its doors came as a bit of a shock. Just a few weeks later, the spot is already plotting a comeback.
Yesterday, Kitchen LTO dropped a "teaser video" for their upcoming crowdfunding campaign to reopen the restaurant’s doors. Scope out the video below:
In the video, Caldwell says that she "lost" the space at Trinity Groves because her partners "no longer shared her vision." Presumably, that call-out refers to Trinity Groves owner and mega-restaurateur Phil Romano, who praised the concept upon its closure. As such, Caldwell is looking for a new home for the restaurant.
The crowdfunding campaign is set to debut next week. Caldwell has not yet announced how much money she needs to raise to reopen the restaurant.
