If you’ve been wondering what Gary Rack has in mind for the former Linda Bean’s Perfect Lobster spot next door to his hugely successful Racks Fish House & Oyster Bar, here it is. . .
Slated to debut mid-February is Fat Rooster, a “down ‘n’ dirty” Southern-style eatery featuring traditional and contemporary comfort fare for breakfast, lunch, dinner, weekend brunch and late night noshing. Specifics aren’t available just yet but the menu from Rack’s exec chef Matthew Danaher will feature such staples of the Southern kitchen as fried chicken, biscuits, greens ‘n’ grits, that sort of thing.
Design too will pay homage to casual, comfortable Southern style—“old school meets Southern down ‘n’ dirty”—with, yes, lots of references to the restaurant’s namesake barnyard fowl. Stay tuned for more details as opening day nears.
