Co. vs. Kin Shop for lunch - with a toddler
I've only been to Kin Shop for lunch and not Co. Kin Shop is not crowded at lunch time, so I doubt they would be reluctant to seat a child. (I would not be reluctant to eat with one.) I don't know if they have highchairs. I rather doubt it, but please call.
Food-wise, Kin Shop's lunches don't seem to be nearly as good as the dinners. Even the appetizer / side of aquatic vegetables I had recently at lunch paled in comparison to versions I've had at dinner. The lunch version was pretty humdrum, where dinner versions I've tried have been excellent.
We did admittedly order only off the lunch prix fixe menu and did not really like our selections. Stirfried wide wonton noodles with chicken sausage, Thai broccoli rabe & oyster sauce were a bit bland. A patty wrapped in dough, filled with ground beef and vegetables, and pan fried was fair, not great. You do, however, have the option of ordering, say, the excellent massaman goat from the regular menu, if you prefer. Since the braise is probably prepared long in advance, I doubt the quality suffers at lunchtime.
