Kitchen Expands Upstairs for Colder Months

Speaking of Jannus’ The Kitchen, the outdoor cafe has become so popular among foodies in recent months (especially following a highly positive review in *tbt) it’s expanding indoors for the colder weather.

A recently redecorated upstairs offers upscale dining room with full-bar offers an intimate, and warmer setting that will debut tonight at 5pm with a special Valentine’s menu. With a chilly weekend ahead, WhigFest attendees will also be welcome to take a break from the cold by grabbing a drink or a bite at The Kitchen’s upstairs full bar or tables starting at 1pm.

The Kitchen is located at 200 1st Ave. N.
