A.Kitchen Is Getting a Little Sister


Kiehl’s enthusiasts were stunned to hear that the location at 18th and Walnut had closed suddenly on January 3rd. But the prime corner location won’t be empty for long. A.kitchen’s David Fields’ tells us that AKA is taking over and plotting a “little sister to a.kitchen.” The concept is still being developed, but expect a 35-seat space with a focus on raw foods. The space won’t have a hood, so hot food won’t be a priority, wine and cocktails will.

The 700-square foot space is being designed by the same firm that did the work at a.kitchen. A May opening date is anticipated.

    Please relocate the CityEats ad to a less distracting and obstructive area.

    Pretty sure that’s what Cityeats is paying for their Jimbo!
    You should try it, instead of being a curmudgeon.

    I know, I knew this was coming, but was very shocked to see Kiehl’s close its doors without notice can’t wait for the Kiehl’s “pop up” temporary store to open while they search for new space for their store. The raw bar is very exciting also!
