The reason Kitchen in Chapel Hill is popular is simple: very good food in the French style, friendly staff; small and intimate, but not fancy: no white table cloths or rigamarole. I sat at the kitchen end of the bar and could watch the cooks...More

Quite some variety in a limited menu - small plates and full sized entrees provided options for everyone. A good selection of wine and beers. Does not take reservations so you might find yourself waiting but the wait is worth it.

I enjoyed Kitchen so much for dinner that I went back for lunch today. Dinner was perfect with four renditions of extraordinary mussels. You have to ask for bread, but they are happy to give it to you when you ask. Great waiters who could...More

We went here before the theater. As usual the food was great and well presented. We had Oysters on the half shell (two types), Duck confit which we have had many times before and lamb belly which seemed appropriate for the first night of Passover,...More

The food at Kitchen is excellent. Three of us had five different dishes (2 of us ordered the same entree). Everything was superb - absolutely delicious! It's got a fairly casual vibe - no reservations, a hand-written menu on the wall, friendly service. Most of...More
