Fatcow on James St

Just when you thought James Street couldn’t contain any more goodness, another big-name eatery opens on the popular strip. In May 2024, the Tassis Grouo lifted the cloche on the new custom-designed location of Fatcow, which boasts a more opulent setting than its Eagle Street-based predecessor. Fatcow’s glow-up, envisioned by Clui Design, takes cues from classic mid-century steakhouses, with a solid marble bar, circular booth seating (encircled by floor-to-ceiling curtains) and mirrored ceilings harking back to a bygone era. Fatcow on James St’s menu will have meat lovers drooling, with 16 steaks from a wide range of producers available alongside mains like Patagonian toothfish with parsley puree, char-grilled Brisbane Valley quail and braised lamb shoulder with Israeli cous cous are joined by char-grilled lobsters doused in garlic butter. As for the wines, Fatcow’s cellar is filled to the brim with options chosen to complement the steak and seafood.
