Casie Caldwell, the entrepreneur responsible for creating Greenz, branched out with a new concept last year with her Kitchen LTO (for “limited time only”) at Trinity Groves. The idea was: Change out the menu and the chef every few months so that each visit is a new experience … or one you can’t enjoy for long. The fourth iteration of the restaurant — which began with a competition between chefs last month — is set to open soon, and the new chef there will be gay fave Blythe Beck.
Beck was the saucy chef at Central 214 whose “naughty” recipes embrace indulgent, non-calorie-counting decadence. (She was even a Dallas Voice Readers Voice Award winner.) She’ll start at Kitchen LTO with the first dinner service on Oct. 2, and the first lunch on Oct. 3 — her return to Dallas as a regular kitchen denizen. Congrats, Blythe!
