Back in July, Kitchen LTO, the “permanent pop-up” concept at Trinity Groves that swaps out chefs and menus every few months, closed abruptly.
y u2014 we thought that was go
a be good,” Phil Romano told the Observer in August when talking about the concept. “It worked in the begi
ing then it just wasn’t doing the business. It was losing money.”
After the closure, owner Casie Caldwell launched a Kickstarter campaign to reopen the restaurant in Deep Ellum. With a $50,000 goal, LTO raised only $16,000 on the crowdsourcing website itself, but says she met her fundraising goal outside of the website.
