A. Kitchen Expansion In the Works

A. Kitchen

David Fields, owner of A. Kitchen inside the AKA Rittenhouse, is taking over the property at the corner of 18th and Walnut streets that most recently housed a Kiehl’s store. His plan is to create a spinoff of the hotel’s restaurant. Foobooz reports that the new venture will specialize in raw foods, since the space isn’t equipped with a hood. But the 700-square foot restaurant, which will seat 35 when complete, will most certainly serve wine and cocktails. The opening is expected sometime in May. [Foobooz]
