"Kitchen" for Mexican?

foodluvngal Jan 12, 2007 12:10 PM

Has anyone been to Kitchen on 8th Ave. in the 20's lately? I'm looking for really good Southwest/Mexican fare, but without the attitude/associated high prices and I remember this place as being pretty good. What I'm craving is homemade tortilla chips, good guacamole and whole beans, (not the standard refried glop). Any other suggestions?

    It's called Kitchen Market. The affiliated restaurant is Bright Food Shop. I've been for brunch and thought the food was very good.

      i was wondering about this the other day when i was in the area. i used to love their take on chicken soup/stew, but i haven't been since 2000 (at the latest).

          I'm not sure where you heard that. I haven't been by in a couple of weeks, but I just called the number, and they're definitely open.

            i thought kitchen market was only to go.

            their sf burritos are great, as is their guac and tortilla pie (take home and heat).
