Leah Tinari and husband, Martin Kirchoff,
opened Fatta Cuckoo in January 2011.
Leah, an artist, and Marty, a set builder, were thrilled to get their hands on this storefront on the very flavorful and vibrant Clinton Street. Growing up with grandparents who made their own wine and jarred tomatoes every year, Leah always wanted to have a little restaurant of her own.
The name “Fatta Cuckoo” was inspired by an untranslatable italian phrase that Grandma Millie used to say after a meal – it went along with a funny little hand gesture.
Here's what New York Magazine says about us:
This LES neighborhood favorite packs a fun vibe and thoughtful, eclectic menu into a cozy 35-seat space. Chef Chris Mitchell worked for April Bloomfield before taking over the kitchen in fall 2011, and his refined comfort food bears traces of that chef’s style, particularly in a dish of perfectly pan-seared arctic char over spinach topped with crispy capers. Grouper tacos were deliciously seasoned on a recent visit, and their California flavor fit with the laid-back atmosphere, as did mussels in a coconut-y Thai-spiced broth. Housemade porcini ravioli arrive in a pureed butternut-squash-carrot sauce with an intense flavor that matches its bright marigold hue. Pork tenderloin is served tender and pink in the center, while short rib in a sweet glaze comes with an unusual cold sweet-potato salad. While there’s serious intent behind the menu, friendly service and tasty cocktails keep things lively, particularly the Root of All Evil, made with rye whiskey, root-beer extract, fresh lemon juice, and bitters.
