If you’ve ventured over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge lately, AKA Large Marge, into Trinity Groves, you may have noticed a new name atop the bright orange Kitchen LTO marquee. Your eyes are not deceiving you. The self-proclaimed “permanent pop-up” restaurant recently switched concepts for the third time. Kitchen LTO (Limited Time Only) rotates Chef’s and Designers every four months. Contestants are voted in via a panel of Dallas based-judges and social media.
This time around, Brooke Egger, a feisty Santa Barbara, CA native and world traveling force of nature is now the star of the Kitchen LTO show. Egger’s “Urban Regional” menu is “heavily influenced with California cuisine and a touch of world flare.” You can expect to find playful creations such as Marrow Baklava and Chilled Lobster Salad with White Chocolate Vinaigrette for starters.
Don’t overlook her Famous Fritos with Cocoa Short-Rib. The atmosphere of Kitchen LTO is laid back and luxurious. Large colorful paintings by Bolivian artists are provided by Dallas- based Blanca Antognelli Art Gallery create a colorful and adventurous dining experience. If you’re feeling brave, ample outdoor seating complete with lounging lawn chairs are available, so why not stop by and give Chef Brooke a hot Dallas summer welcome and stuff your face while doing so.
