Beginning in mid-to-late-January 2020, the restauranteurs who recently acquired West Midtown’s Le Fat restaurant from Guy Wong will gradually begin to evolve the menu, which currently serves traditional Vietnamese fare like Bún, Phở, and Com.

“We just took over the restaurant a couple of weeks ago, so we plan to settle in first and then after the holidays are over, slowly begin our changes,” managing partner Lin Jiang shared with What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a phone interview on Monday.

Expect more Sichuan/Szechwan-style dishes on the French-Vietnamese menu and more Chinese and Cantonese fusion, Jiang revealed.

Also on deck for early-2020 will be Dim Sum brunches on Saturdays and Sundays.

On the other side of town, Wong is readying Ruby Chow’s in Old Fourth Ward for an end-of-January 2020 opening.

“We wanted to get Guy back in the kitchen and get back to a chef-driven environment,” Mike Blum, co-owner at Ruby Chow, shared on a call with WNA.

“Guy is going back to MISO and playing off a lot of his hits there. We’ll have a late-night menu at Ruby Chow’s as we did at MISO. We’re also excited to be so close to our other restaurant, Ton Ton.”

As for continued post-sale involvement with Le Fat, Blum is optimistic about the planned changes, “Guy and I have all the faith that the new owners will be able to elevate Le Fat’s menu and we will still continue to be available for support with the transition.”
