Not Your Grandmother’s Kitchen


The Kitchen in Englewood

Ah, the 1930s. Not the era you reflect on when you think of fine dining? Well, two veteran restaurateurs and one veteran chef, disagree. Their new restaurant, The Kitchen, pays homage to the era they say laid the seeds for dining in modern America. The cozy dining room feels more like an intimate dinner party than a gourmet eatery. But don’t expect the typical chicken soup or boiled potatoes grandma used to make. Kitchen serves up a blended menu of “early 20th century comfort food”, such as buttermilk fried chicken and rice pudding, along with more sophisticated American cuisine.

The Kitchen keeps you coming back with a seasonal menu which changes every two weeks, so you never get bored. We tried the chopped salad to start and the grilled hanger steak, both of which pleased our taste buds. And it’s hard to believe that anything in life is actually free these days, but while we waited for our salads, the waiter started bringing over bite-sized appetizers not listed on the menu (for real). Bacon wrapped melon, stuffed tomatoes and cheese tarts were bestowed on us before the first course was served, to “try”. These starters are some of the offerings from The Kitchen’s catering business. And based on what we tasted, they would please even your most discerning guest.

So call up and score that reservation. Come with an appetite, a bottle of wine and be prepared to chow down.

With food this tasty, even good ol’ granny would approve.
