Ridiculously good fried chicken.
Ridiculously good fried chicken. I would highly recommend checking out this cute little restaurant to anyone looking for a nice meal in a casual setting. They have lots of great mid-week specials as well.

Fatta Cuckoo was interesting,
Fatta Cuckoo was interesting, in a good way. The restaurant is pea-sized. It is very small but it lends I the homey vibe. We had brunch, a group of 5, and were seated at one of their booths (there are only about 4-5 booths in the restaurant. The drinks were small and portions were moderate but very good, regardless. They don't take credit studs so come prepared with cash. This would be an ideal location to rent out for a private party. I would probably eat there again, but try it for dinner instead.

My party of six was about
My party of six was about a half hour late for our 1 PM reservation, but we were seated immediately. Whew! Everyone went for the $25 "drunch" special, which includes an entree and 3 drinks. To my knowledge this is the best brunch deal in the neighborhood, and I was surprised the place wasn't more crowded. I got a short rib, egg, and cheese sandwich, which was delicious. Egg fried just right, yolk slightly runny. Really great idea for a brunch sandwich, albeit a bit messy to eat. Drinks were tasty. Fries (which came with many of the entrees) left a bit to be desired - they were a bit on the soggy side. Hotter oil or more time in the fryer would have made a difference. But overall everyone enjoyed their meal and left with a decent buzz going.

Had a great brunch!
I wish I hadn't driven so I could take advantage of the "Drunch" deal!! Next time I will be sure to prepare ahead of time for a great alcoholic brunch. Otherwise I had a great meal, hope to come back soon!

Great spot for a bite to eat
Great spot for a bite to eat and for cocktails. Food and service both very good. Specials change daily so there's always something different to eat.

Perfect fried chicken
I am originally from the South, and this place knows how to fry some chicken. Perfectly crispy, yet juicy inside. And flavorful! I like this little place a lot.

We went on a Saturday morning for Drunch. The cocktails were great and the food even greater.
Leah was a gem and made us feel so welcome.
It was so good I want to book a flight back to New York just to have "Date Night" there!!!!
Fatta Cuckoo will always be a place that we return to when we visit NYC...

A great date spot with character
Fatta Cuckoo is a small, romantic spot--don't get fooled by the few tables. The food was exceptional, especially the pork chop, which was also generously portioned. Zucchini from the owner's kitchen were phenomenal as a special, and service was very friendly, especially from the bartender, who was generous with the night's cocktail specials. A great gem tucked away on the Lower East Side.

Exciting Comfort Food
Place: Booth seating, Intimate and Friendly.
Food: Grouper taco was delicious but spicy. Fried Chicken! Burger! Key Lime Pie on the house for no reason! So good. Comfort food. Great cocktails.
Wait staff: Very friendly and attentive (but not overly).

Great Deal and Great Service
I went to Fatta Cuckoo for Drunch with a friend and had such a nice time. It wasn't too crowded, so we were able to eat and drink leisurely. The Drunch deal is awesome and the food was flavorful and interesting. I didn't season anything! I would definitely recommend this tiny treasure of a restaurant for brunch, lunch, cocktails, and everything in between!

Good Local Spot
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!

Why brunch when you can drunch?
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.
