A year-long experiment in chef-focused conceptual restaurants, LTO (Limited Time Only) does short-term (from a week to a month in length) engagements with notable chefs from far and wide that are given free reign to experiment and develop their own menus. BaoHaus' Eddie Huang, the crew behind Fatty 'Cue, and Top Chef's Lea Cohen have all made appearances so far. The bar also boasts a rotating crew and a constantly changing menu of expertly mixed cocktails.
