Though he is shuttering his restaurant The Fat Cow after less than two years in business, shouty chef Gordon Ramsay has plans for the Los Angeles restaurant space. Reps tell Eater LA that Ramsay will be keeping the space and creating a new restaurant there. Details at this point are slim, but reps say an announcement will come soon revealing more about the concept that will replace The Fat Cow.
There's no confirmed timeline on the new LA restaurant concept yet, but The Fat Cow will close after service on March 27. Although reps say the restaurant isn't closing for lack of business, The Fat Cow has faced several challenges since opening in 2012. Last April, contractors sued claiming they were still owed $45,350.35 of a nearly $200,000 tab. A few months later, Fat Cow employees filed a class action lawsuit, claiming the restaurant failed to pay them minimum wage or overtime, made them skip meals, and more. As of right now, there's still no mention of the closure on The Fat Cow's website, Facebook, or Twitter.
