Love the laid back but upscale atmosphere and always love every dish. The chicken and waffles at brunch is a MUST!

We went into Kith and Kin hearing really great things. We traveled from NY but while in Chicago we had to try it out for ourselves. We wanted to have a drink at the beautiful bar before our meal. There is a great wine list and a large list of beers to choose from. One beer called Green Line you can only find with a certain number of miles of its brewery. The food was wonderful. We heard the Crocks were what the chef was known for... so we went for many of them- all were great (my favorite was the pork). The salads were tasty. My mom loved the beet salad and went on and on how it was teh best salad she has ever had! For an entree I went for the flat iron steak- if was amazing. others in my party went for the Grouper sandwich , & A steak sandwich with really tasty handcut skinny fries on freshly baked bread that is made there in kith and kin. For dessert ( i barely barely had room!!!) I had to get this chocolate peanut better pie that has a pretzel crust. IT was BEYOND amazing. There was also a banana custard type something ordered at ou table that was licked clean:) This place was fun, lively and the food was great. I wish it was in NY so I could go once a week.

This place is amazing. I felt like I was in an episode of Top Chef. Everything was great. My friend and I had the french onion soup, chicken liver pate, lamb neck stew and the fried egg sandwich, and not to forget the cheesy side grits. So good. We were so full we didn't have room for dessert even though they sounded delicious. If I could give service more than a 5 I would, our waiter was outstanding. Love the atmosphere. I was surprised to see a lot of kids in the restaurant though. It's a very cozy spot with amazing food. I think its very reasonably priced for the quality food you get. Highly recommended!

So we went on a slow Sunday a couple of weeks after it opened, kids in tow... not expecting greatness but hoping for some interesting food. In a word: outstanding. The staff were friendly, attentive. The food was amazing. Started w/ the chicken liver paté, which was excellent (just needed to ask for extra crostini, which they happily provided). Then the escarole salad: warm but not wilted, pecans and blue cheese w/ poached pears -- amazing! Hubby had the french onion soup - perfectly executed. The kids' entrées were not even close to standard kid fare -- the chicken was beautifully done, light and almost with the texture of really well done fish 'n chips. The choucroute (bratwurst) and grouper cheek sandwich were off the charts as well. So just open for 2 weeks and the staff are already executing well. Owners are eager to get to know the neighbors and happy to provide great food at an excellent, approachable price. Over time this will be a destination spot. You heard it here first.

I came to Kith & Kin on one of their first days open, expecting moderate food similar to all the other middle-of-the-road stuff we have in the neighborhood. What a surprise to have such an amazing meal! The chicken thighs are among the best chicken I've ever had, the choucroute with comes with an incredibly flavorful housemade kielbasa, and the shrimp and grits were smoky and subtle. The one miss was the housemade pappardelle, which was a little thick and gummy, but still flavorful. The space is awkward and the service was spotty, but it was opening week so I'm forgiving. I hope this place survives.
