Great food, cool atmosphere. I sat at the bar, which means I didn't get to partake in the full dinner service. (You NEED reservations to get a dinner table so plan ahead!) The bar menu is limited but still has plenty of goodies to fill you up with sweet and spicy food. I have food allergies and there were still lots of dishes I could eat (and the bar tender had all the elements I was allergic to removed from the dishes when he put in the order). The wings were excellent. There was that spicy and sweet combo. There is a mushroom dish that is super rich and filling. The plantain chips are also a bit spicy and fun to munch on. The Brussels sprouts were spicy and sweet too.

The food here is outstanding. I have to admit that I first looked at the portions and thought this food will never fill me up. I was so wrong. The food was filling and delicious! My son and I shared a shrimp dish and a hamburger. It was the best hamburger that I have ever had! And, the shrimp ever so scrumptious. It is a must dining experience.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our lunch at Kith and Kin! We had the Brussels sprouts, burger, and meat pies. The brussels were absolutely delightful, very spicy and crispy with a creamy sauce on the side. The burger was very good, as were the meat pies. The service was great. The only reason I’m taking off one star is because it is a little pricey for what you get. Also the atmosphere is fine, but nothing special.
