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.

About Last Night: Hey, Bro…

So last night was the latest installment of our now legendary Foobooz Open Stove Night, and this one had everything: Sibling rivalry, strange fruits, children, over-proof rum, fire, disqualifications, contest winners, breakfast cereal, childhood trauma, a weird old man who wandered in off the street (and not Georges Perrier, for a change).

It was a great night full of food that ran the gamut from awesomely brilliant to…not. And once more, we had COOK photo ninja Yoni Nimrod there to take the pictures. So here’s what you missed.
