Fat Shorty's will open its doors at 4 p.m. today, according to its Twitter account. The restaurant is a collaboration between restaurateur Aaron Gordon (Drafting Table) and Chef Rock Harper (Hell's Kitchen). The pair has transformed Gordon's former salad destination, Rabbit, into a new concept that specializes in sausages. Expect some unusual meats such as rattlesnake and alligator, as well as classic sausages. There's also beer and mussels. The full menu is here. Status: Opening tonight. 3035 Clarendon Blvd., Arlington; website.
