A friend told me about The Kitchen which sits along the north bank of the Chicago River in downtown Chicago. We met there for lunch one day. I arrived early. Admittedly, I was skeptical. Chicago is full of new restaurants these days, many of them claim to have the same values Kimbal instills in his establishments. But, of all the restaurants that make the claim, The Kitchen is one of a very few that actually delivers.
I thanked my friend for taking the skeptic out of me. This is a wonderful business and so well executed.
