When owner Stephen Henderson originally opened The Kitchen, the restaurant only had 20 seats. The demand for the eatery's excellent food quickly outgrew their ability to serve customers, and after just two years in business, The Kitchen moved to a new space, with fantastic results.
When you walk in, you’ll be dazzled by the stylish decor, which includes a bronzed tin ceiling, crystal chandeliers, and a leaf-patterned wallpaper that’s stunning. But all this plays second fiddle to the food, which regulars report is out of this world. After you place your order, the chef will send out an amuse-bouche to tantalize your palate. Some of the prime dishes that diners rave about include the dark, flavorful lobster bisque and the grilled veal rib chop with a Gruyere popover. The place’s signature dish, the fried chicken and waffles with buttermilk gravy, is sure to inspire repeat visits to this Englewood eatery.
