Change is afoot in the Fat Radish empire.

The modern British eatery at 17 Orchard Street is set to dish out a new “lunch concept,” and duly welcomes executive chef Nick Wilber back into the fold, to work alongside head chef Jared Dowling. Owners Ben Towill and Phil Winser had previously relocated Wilber to their Upper East Side joint, The East Pole, back in August 2013.

The new Fat Radish lunch menu promises dishes with “vegetables at the forefront” and a price point of $10 for each. Seasonal menu offerings include: Whole Roasted Butternut Squash with Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Pickled Raisins and Sage Vinaigrette, a Roasted Cauliflower Sandwich with Spiced Squash & Chicory, and a spin on NY’s Falafel Wrap with Beet Hummus & Tabouleh.  Additionally, the last Friday of every month has been earmarked for a guest chef to do a menu takeover.

And if you recall, Pintail Coffee, the surf-style successor to Lost Weekend, joined forces with Fat Radish a few weeks ago, and is currently holding court in its forward lobby from 8am to 4pm daily.
