In Brief

The grocery chain opened its first restaurant, Kitchen 1883, next to one of its stores

For any shopper who dreads going to a grocery store hungry, supermarket chain Kroger may have presented a solution with its new concept restaurant Kitchen 1883. The name of the restaurant references the year when the founder of Kroger, Barney Kroger, started the company.

This new restaurant is attached to one of Kroger’s existing grocery stores and uses the store’s ingredients in all of their meals. Kitchen 1883 will open its doors for lunch and dinner on the weekdays and provide brunch during the weekends. Those who visit the restaurant will find that the menu changes throughout the seasons, based on what fresh ingredients the store has available. Most dishes vary in price from $10 to $18.

Kitchen 1883 opened at the Kroger store in Union, Kentucky and could expand to additional locations if this first one proves successful.
