After travelling across the country and successfully opening restaurants in five states, chef Kevin Gaundreau has developed an inspired cuisine that can most accurately be described as Creative American. Curious? Think remastered American favorites and delightfully unexpected bursts of flavor. His Hope Street restaurant, KG Kitchen Bar, keeps things fresh and interesting with a constantly changing menu that utilizes locally grown ingredients and the endless bounty of the ocean. A few of the chef’s favorites include the house-made Bolognese with fresh wagon wheel rigatoni and the award-winning Shrimp and Grits. Also not to be missed are the house-made ice creams and specialty cocktails, like the barrel-aged Manhattan. The $23 pre-fixe menu offered Sunday through Wednesday includes an appetizer and entree along with your choice of wine or draft beer, making this place a no-brainer when you’re looking for a well-rounded and delicious meal that won’t stretch your wallet.
