Kitchen LTO, the Permanent Pop-Up in Trinity Groves, Is Already Looking for its Next Concept

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 [email protected]

A committee made up of local chefs and restaurant owners, including Chris Zielke, owner of Bolsa and Chicken Scratch, will screen candidates. The survivors of the first round will be announced in December and the public can vote until January. LTO Round 2 should be open in early February of 2014.
