If you ever doubted that NE 30th Avenue was the most serious contender to NE 28th Avenue’s restaurant row, you can put your doubts to rest today. Several hours ago, Micah Camden, the 30-year-old proprietor of Beast, Yakuza, and DOC, opened his fourth restaurant. Called Fats, this new venture anchors the southwest corner of NE 30th Avenue and Killingsworth Street in the space formerly occupied by Grolla.

By day, Fats serves a hearty brunch. After the Fourth of July weekend, the restaurant will open for dinner and late-night hours, serving British-style pub grub such as bangers and mash, fish and chips, and in true London form, chicken tikka masala. Camden says Fats will stay open until midnight or later.

Beaker and Flask opens tomorrow. What a fantastic week.
