FoodPorn Friday: Ktchn


When taking the hubby to the theater, pre-show snacking is pretty important.  All you theater-geeks married to or dating non-theater geeks totally get what I mean, right?  Kinda like how it’s REALLY important for me to have good snacks when sitting through a soccer game or tennis match and especially football…but I digress.

We were headed to see Under My Skin* on 42nd Street (so funny, by the way, put it on your to-do list!), and Ktchn was right down the block.  I had heard great things about their $25 pre-theater menu, and although we weren’t hungry enough for a full on dinner, decided to give their bar food a go.

The sleek design, finished with lots of white and glass, is a gorgeous setting to grab a cocktail and some munchies.  Combine the modern aesthetic with super quick and friendly service, and tons of seating for drop-ins at the bar, and we were totally digging the vibe.  Once we checked out the menu and saw that they didn’t have just fries, but Sexy Fries, we were in love.  Drenched in vinegar and garlic, they reminded me of fries you’d find on the Coney Island boardwalk…the garlic adding that evocative something special.

The hubby ordered Lobster Risotto Cubes with a Lobster Aloli sauce, which were completely gobbled down in a matter of minutes.  Good thing too, because we had a show to catch!  But we’ll definitely be back…I’m saving that pre-theater menu as a dangling carrot for the next show I want to see!

What’s the most memorable dish you’ve eaten this week?  Describe below!

    I didn’t eat anything very exciting this week. I tossed some pasta with a butter, olive oil, garlic mixture the other day. Through in some mussels and black olives. It was quite tasty. I think I’m going to add mushrooms to the leftovers today :)

    • Used York City says:

      That sounds amazing, Krystie! I actually have a small can of olives, so may just take your lead on this! Thanks!

  • Jackie says:

    Oh I will definitely add this spot for our next trip to NY. Love pre-theatre deals.

  • I had a great burger from Umami with a friend.. and took 50 % + home to the DH.. so that he could have it. I love Umami but I wanted something more!

    • Used York City says:

      Oh sorry to hear you were left lacking, Stevie! I’ve never tried Umami, would you recommend it?

  • Maria says:

    Wonderful aesthetic at KTCHN and those sexy fries sound D-lish!
