A word from Fatta Cuckoo
Fatta Cuckoo is a 36 seat Restauarant on the very vibrant and flavorful Clinton Street, on the Lower East Side. Leah Tinari and husband Martin Kirchoff opened Fatta Cuckoo in 2011. The kitchen is headed up by Chris Mitchell and all the desserts are made by Leah's mom, Janice Tinari. All of the produce is sourced at the local markets by the chef and owner the very same day it will be served on your plate! The restaurant's seasonal American menu, allows for the kitchen to be influenced by different cuisines and leaves room for many daily seasonal specials, some of which have been inspired by Tinari's family recipes. Please come dine with us and check out our new Fall Menus. Fatta Cuckoo has a wonderful brunch on the weekends with many savory brunch cocktails. The dinner menu is complemented by a nice wine list and a fabulous cocktail list by Christian Schaal. If you are looking to host a private chef's dinner with 15 to 30 plus we would be happy to accommodate you on a Monday night!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I think this is my new favorite restaurant in LES. I went last night with a friend for dinner. Before my friend arrived I sat at the bar and met some of the staff as well as the owner. I have to say all were so sweet and accommodating, basically they made you feel at home. As for the food it was excellent. My friend and I shared the calamari appetizer, so good. Then for the main course we both ordered the pork chop, probably one of the best pork chops I've had in the city. It was cooked perfectly, the vegetables were tasty and the presentation was just right. We didn't try the dessert because we had plans, but next time I'm there I'll make a point to try it."

  • "Good food, poor service. Servers sat at the bar drinking and not paying any attention to our party. Too many better restaurant out there with better food. No need to feel like we're bothering you. Enjoy your drink."

  • "The restaurant is small so if you're going for brunch, best to go with no more than five people. Their "drunch" includes three drinks and an entree. The corn fritters for brunch are extremely tastey."

  • "Turned out to be a perfect brunch for a group of 4 girls. Three good cocktails and an entree for $25 was a great deal! Three of us had the Marty, short ribs on English muffin topped with a fried egg. Not amazing flavors, but pretty good. Delicious fresh cut fries on the side! Cute hole in the wall which opens onto the street when weather is warm. No long waits which is great!"

  • "One word: Drunch. So simple in theory, yet this is one of the few places that actually get it right. Highly recommend The Marty, it was on point. They were also really helpful in catering to my friend who's vegan, so this is a great place to take people with weird dietary restrictions, too!"

  • "NYC has a ton of brunch places and some will definitely be a disappointment. Fatta Cuckoo however is not one of those. The place may be small and if you're looking for a quiet brunch to nurse that bangin hangover from last night, it might not be ideal but the food is great and the service is awesome. The fact that their boozy brunch (1 entree + 3 drinks for either $25 or $30) is dubbed Drunch doesn't hurt the appeal either."

  • "Went for group dinner on a weekend night. Quiet ambiance. App's: mussels, meatballs, buratta. Meatballs were the clear favorite: they were tender, flavorful and in amazing sauce. Mussels and buratta were good but not terrific. Entrees: fried chicken, pork chop, trout. Chicken looked and smelled divine but were complete salt bombs. The exterior was nicely crisp and non-oily. Both white and dark meat were super juicy, but were shockingly inedibly salty. Pork was the favorite. Dessert: Key lime pie, coconut custard pie, chocolate flourless cake. Key lime very good-creamy, lightly sweet and tart. Chocolate cake was heavy, lacked flavor and richness. Service was slow and forgot orders. Pls improve ventilation-we went home reeking of frying oil."

  • "Great service! Went on New Year's Eve. Small space, leads to very energetic atmosphere. Friendly waiters, who kept us entertained while we waited for our food - slow, given the busy night. Simple, elegant menu. I went for the pork chops with sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts - would order again. My friend highly recommended his friend chicken. And to start things off, make sure to order the calamari. Overall, a quaint little gem in LES, great to check out before hitting the bars on Delancey."

  • "Fatta Cuckoo was delicious! You can buy delicious dishes like fried chicken, a creation called the "Yeah Elvis" (pb & j sandwich between two waffles) or an egg sandi a la carte or go full Monty and get the drunch which includes three cocktails. Highly recommend."

  • "The food was delicious. Great combinations. Well prepared. Wish I could say the same about our waitress. Every time we needed something...whether it be to order or the check... She was no where to be found. She also got my order wrong."

  • "This used to be such a great little restaurant, especially for brunch, but the food and service have definitely gone down hill. I had a reservation that wasn't acknowleged and ended up being seated at the bar/counter with my party. I was served mimosa in a lipstick stained glass and my french toast was cold. Our server ended up going on break the minute she gave us the check. She sat down next to us at the counter and ate her brunch, which looked way better than what we were served. We ended up waiting quite a long time for the other woman working to take our check and then were told that brunch was cash only- which it doesn't say anywhere on their website or menu- and it never has been before. Very disappointing!"

  • "Great local spot for Brunch or what they Call "DRUNCH". Couldn't beat the $25 deal for one brunch Entree and 3 mimosas! Food was delicious and simple! Server was super friendly!"
