The Kitchen Restaurant Review

: More East Village than Los Angeles, The Kitchen reflects its Silver Lake neighborhood's counter culture. With exposed brick walls and concrete flooring, the intimate café boasts only a handful of tables and one large booth. Everything is simple and straightforward, from the décor to the attitude to the cuisine. The Kitchen's kitchen turns out an eclectic mix of comfort foods from meatloaf to sesame-crusted albacore to Belgian beef stew and goat cheese latkes. We like the cornbread with chunks of onion and peppers, and also recommend the buttermilk fried chicken. What the menu lacks in creativity and refinement, it makes up for in quality, flavor and value. The chefs clearly know their way around The Kitchen.
