Kindred Davidson

Kindred Restaurant

Kay Fisher & Lauren had the pleasure of attending Kindred Davidson’s soft-opening this week, before its grand opening last night – February 19th.  Kindred Restaurant is owned by Davidson residents, Joe & Katy Kindred.  Joe is the former chef for Rooster’s Uptown and is now showcasing his creativity exclusively in Davidson.

When we arrived, the restaurant is very welcoming.  You enter into the main dining area and bar on the left.  The bar features a unique wood piece on the wall, that is part of the former drug store that occupied this building.  Kindred offers main floor dining, upstairs dining, patio dining (when warm!), and a unique 10-person chef’s table in the kitchen.

The menu is eclectic, offering items for every palate.  We started off with the milk bread appetizer with house-made butter.  We probably could have made a meal of the bread!  It was warm, a little salty & perfect with the butter.

From the menu, we ordered the winter lettuces salad – this came with dehydrated persimmons & spiced walnuts.  Our entrees were the pasture-raised chicken & the baked egg.  Kindred offers smaller plates for eating and sharing, but both of us were full from our bread, salads & entrees.  The Baked Egg was a hit – crispy jasmine rice, radishes, onion, cilantro & and egg on top, all served in a cast-iron skillet.Kindred Davidson

We finished our meal with Kindred’s birthday cake – a chocolate cake with sprinkles & a sweet cream ice cream.  This dish was amazing.

Kindred’s wait-staff are very well-versed in the drink & dinner menu.  Our server explained the dishes perfectly.  The ambience in the restaurant is very nice – perfect for a family dinner or romantic date night.

We have a feeling Kindred Davidson will be packed for dinner each night, with many repeat customers.  We know we are returning!
