Kitchen - Permanently Closed

Permanently Closed - Located at 560 Tremont St in the heart of the South End Boston, we serve up time honored cuisine. Each item is accompanied by a circa date referencing the first time the dish, an ingredient, or cooking method was first found in print.

With the sounds of music bursting from the turntable in the corner, the atmosphere is laid-back and comfortable, perfect for family and friends to meet over a delicious meal, cocktail, wine, and fabulous conversation!

"There are only about 9 tables in the whole restaurant so make a reservation!
Food was delicious, mini donuts especially. The breakfast sandwich is massive, comes on two Texas toast like bread pieces."

"We loved the food at Kitchen! We sat at the back of the restaurant, which was a bit dim and not a fantastic ambiance, but our brussels sprouts appetizer was great, the scallops and tuna entrees were wonderful, and all the desserts here are amazing! Entree portions aren't huge and wine/beer list is small, but the quality of the food was high."

"The food was pretty good! Not great, but pretty good! Out server (check told me it was Deanna, but sometimes this are just whomever opened the ticket or printed it) was very kind, polite, and efficient. It was disappointing to get there and learn that they'd run out of puff pastry for the Beef Wellington."

"First off, the reason I gave service only 3 stars was because it seemed as though our server, who provided great service under the circumstances. The circumstances being that it seemed she was the only server in the restaurant. She managed to maintain a very polite, professional, etc., manner it was just super slow and she seemed like she was in desperate need of a break, which again, appeared to be the result of her being the only server not because of her lacking abilities. The food it self was just alright, just not on par with its neighbors in terms of quality, especially for the price."

"I have had a couple great experiences at Kitchen and the food is great. However, the service isn't. The hostess is unpleasant and the servers aren't amazing enough to want to go back. They do not give the impression that they would go out of their way to make it an excellent experience for their diners."

"I've been to Kitchen during Dine Out Boston several times. It's always a great value as you get to choose off the main menu. The food is delicious and the waitstaff is always friendly and helpful. I recently dined in the back room (too cold for outside dining!) which was warm and cozy. Kitchen is a keeper."

"Looking to start off a nice, relaxing weekend at the end of a long business trip and a late flight that got me home on Friday night, Kitchen sounded like just the spot for a nice late supper. Unfortunately, the food and the ambiance left me a bit perplexed and pretty disappointed.
The wine list was pretty interesting, with a nice selection of whites and light reds that compliment a menu that's heavy with seafood. I ordered the cod, which was served with savoy cabbage and Vermont bacon, and jumped right in to the entree with no appetizer. The portion of cod was very generous, but I'm afraid the flavor didn't match the size of the entree. The best way I can describe that dish was bland, bland, bland. The fish was cooked properly, but it lacked any interesting flavor--or any flavor at all, for that matter. The bacon added absolutely zip in the way of flavor, and I came across the occasional piece strewn about my cabbage, which was likewise pretty flavorless. While I try to stick with fish on Fridays in Lent, my penitential sacrifice for the season does not include giving up flavors.
My companion ordered the scallops, and he struggled through them. I had a bite, and found them to be overcooked, resembling scallop-flavored rubber bands. It's scallop season in New England, for crying out loud; it's such a pity to have encountered scallop golf-balls instead of the flavor of the season. Having had quite enough of Kitchen's kitchen, we skipped dessert and had a French press of coffee, which was at least tasty.
We sat in the back room by the window, which overlooked the most uninviting scene I've had the displeasure of seeing out of a restaurant window in a long time. I realize it's wintertime in Boston, and there's little that can be done, but really, does the back yard that we're looking at during dinner need to dotted with rubbish and furniture? If Kitchen is going to seat people by a picture window looking over an outdoor area, please at least clean it up."

"Delicious food and great server. The clam chowder was different than any I had tried before, a must try. The restaurant back area with tables was too cold to enjoy so we asked to be moved inside and otherwise had no problems. Mushrooms in a glass is the best appetizer too!"
