Prepare for trouble and make it double—Kroger is opening its second full-service dining experience, Kitchen 1883, after finding success with the first. The new location, a stand-alone restaurant with a patio in the Greater Cincinnati neighborhood-based Anderson Township, is set to open this fall.
"With Kitchen 1883, our vision is to create a gathering place that offers a casual atmosphere for guests to relax and experience food," said Vice President of Culinary Development and New Business Daniel Hammer. "Since opening our pilot restaurant five months ago, we've discovered new ideas that will help to shape our future dining concepts and in-store fresh food experiences."
The restaurant will serve made-from-scratch comfort food items with American flair that invites international flavors into the mix. In addition, customers can enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and a community-centered atmosphere at the both locations. For lunch and dinner, consumers can look to Kitchen 1883 for their weekday needs, with brunch available on Saturdays and Sundays.
"Kitchen 1883 is just one way Kroger is redefining the customer experience through innovative concepts, as we outlined in Restock Kroger," continued Mr. Hammer. "Kroger's Culinary Innovation team will continue innovating and experimenting with food trends, flavors, and ingredients to create new experiences and products for our customers and new menu items for our restaurant guests."
After opening last November in Kentucky, the original Kitchen 1883 was met with success, and is serving as the launching pad for Kroger's second location.
