R+D Kitchen Restaurant Review

: R+D Kitchen, a concept from the Hillstone Restaurant Group (Houston’s, Gulfstream, Bandera), boasts a convenient location at the entrance to Fashion Island. Like its siblings, the indoor-outdoor space is a sleek combination of wood, glass and leather, providing a modern take on a classic tavern. Flavorful entrée salads and sandwiches range from a spinach and chicken Waldorf salad to a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. Burgers are made with meat that is ground on the premises each morning, cooked on a flat-top grill and served on homemade buns. Mains also include roasted salmon and wild mushroom meatloaf. For dessert, diners can choose from carrot cake or pot de crème. A short wine list offers many selections by the glass. Friendly and efficient staff will have you back window shopping in no time.
