Some of Chino Chinatown’s Fork Fight offerings, via Facebook

Welcome to September, when high-profile restaurant openings abound South of the Trinity.

The Local Oak, a new place from Alycen Cuellar, Felix Garcia and Paul Delgado, is expected to open near Zoli’s, at Zang and Davis, by Sept. 15.

Kitchen LTO, the “permanent pop-up” restaurant at Trinity Groves that will change concepts every four months, opens Sept. 30. The first chef is Norman Grimm, whose menu will be modern French/American. Coeval Studios, the company behind Outpost American Tavern and Campo, is the designer.

Also at Trinity Groves, Chino Chinatown, the ultimate Fork Fight champion, could open this month. Luck is hiring, which means they plan to open very soon. Chef Sharon van Meter’s Beignet Bridge Club originally had been expected to open in August. Resto Gastro Bistro, which offers this video, is still under construction and is expected to open this fall.
