Kitchen LTO, the Permanent Pop-Up in Trinity Groves, Is Already Looking for its Next Concept
This could soon be: Featuring Chef [YOUR NAME HERE].
Kitchen LTO, the perennial pop-up restaurant in Trinity Groves, is now accepting applications for its second iteration. Every four months the restaurant gets overhauled by a new designer and chef, which depending on how you look at it is either promotional shtick or commentary on the transient, sand mandala-like nature of the food-service industry.
Either way, the leaves are changing and it's time to look for a new chef and designer. Chef Norman Grimm helmed the first iteration, and replacements need to a have grasp of food pricing and "be prepared to take center stage," the restaurant announced. Designer applicants need to be able to work with a culinary concept, and all need to have their applications in by November 18. Applications are available for download here, and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
