THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Fatty 'Cue Restaurant Review

: The second outpost of chef Zak Pelaccio’s meat-centric temple is maybe the best; its dining room is casual yet sleeker than one might expect for a restaurant that emphasizes carnivore fare. The food has a slight Southeast Asian accent --- no surprise, since chef Pelaccio also runs the Malaysian mini-chain, Fatty Crab --- mixed with a Southern U.S. flair. Tripe in a spicy red, anchovy-spiked curry is a good place to start. Good soft cheese and chilis, spread over slightly toasted bread, is also recommended. Toothsome roasted bone marrow pairs nicely with kimchi and the fish sauce-laden spare ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender. Wash it all down with a house-made “dark & stormy” or a chili-salt-rimmed Malay michelada.
