The Kitchen Restaurant Review

: The skills of executive chef John Griffiths and his team take center stage at the hours-long, five-course demonstration dinners offered by The Kitchen. The live version of a TV cooking show is known for its extravagance and makes a unique dining experience. The prix-fixe menu changes regularly, but diners can count on fresh seafood and meat, seasonal produce and decadent desserts. Menus have included a beet, cherry and duck salad, pan-seared halibut with fava beans and preserved lemon, porcini risotto with English peas, and rib-eye with ramp butter and white asparagus. The chefs themselves suggest wines for each course, but their carefully selected wine list invites independent exploring. The venue is often booked months in advance, and while dinner is a pricey $135 per person, The Kitchen offers its wines at retail --- not restaurant --- prices.
