The Kitchen is an American Bistro featuring a seasonal menu with locally sourced ingredients. Our elegant but causal space gives you and your guests the perfect balance between being at a restaurant and right at home. The name 'The Kitchen' was chosen for the desire to create a restaurant that would act much like the kitchen in one's home - a center of conversation and connection - the place everyone likes to hang out. First opened in 2004 in Boulder, Colorado and have since expanded to locations in Denver, and Chicago. We are committed to environmentally-friendly practices, including composting, wind power, eco-friendly packaging, and recycling. The Kitchen has been named one of "America's Top Restaurants" according to Food & Wine, Zagat, Gourmet, among many other publications.
