    Fette Sau, the barbecue operation that Stephen Starr is bringing to life in the city’s Fishtown section is about four weeks out from making its debut on Frankford Avenue. Joe Carroll, who owns the Brooklyn original, and partnered with Starr to recreate it here, says he was already looking to expand Fette Sau outside of New York around the time he met the “King of Restaurants.” Opening in Philly, he said was a no brainer.
