Kitchen LTO Looking For Next Round Of Chefs


Kitchen LTO, a Trinity Groves incubator restaurant, is now accepting chef and designer/artist applications for its second-round “permanent popup” restaurant.

Concepted by Casie Caldwell (founder and owner of Greenz Salads — a Dallas based fast-casual eatery), Kitchen LTO opened with its first-round chef Norman Grimm and design team Coeval Studio, in September.  This innovative restaurant will dramatically change every four months as a new chef rotates in and introduces a new menu concept.  Simultaneously, a new design team or artist re-designs the interior’s transformable elements.

Applications must be received by November 18th, in order to be considered for the second round of operation.  A screening committee will review the applications.  Finalists will then be introduced to the public, at a party tentatively scheduled for December 15th.  Voting, through the website, begins at the party and will end on January 3rd.  Votes will be tallied and the winners will be announced on January 6th.  February 4th, 2014 is the planned debut for Kitchen LTO – Round Two.   

CHEFS: Kitchen LTO is looking for chefs that are relatively new to a professional kitchen or have been working in this industry for decades.  Applicants must be a strong leader, highly organized and creative with an excellent grasp of food costing.  They must also be creative, cool under pressure and ready for center stage. This potential candidate should also be prepared for the possibility of being approached by an investor to open his/her own restaurant in the future.  Current executive chef, Norman Grimm is currently working with an outside investor.

DESIGNERS: Seeking up and coming designers or artists – independent or with a design firm – that are detail oriented, energetic and professional.  Applicants must be able to apply design style to match a culinary concept.

  1. I cant believe a few incarnations arent pre-booked & planned. This seems like a very bad business concept. What if no one comes forward one time, keep repeating same concept till then? The idea is great; the application is faulty
