Upscale new American restaurant. Come here with an open mind because they have a very short but interesting menu. You work you way down the menu from appetizers to entrees then deserts. We ordered their beef tartare and the trout. Both are raw but freshly delicious. The restaurant is filled with natural sunlight in the afternoon and the inside is beautiful. Would go again.
One of its kind restaurant with one of its kind menu items. The staff was courteous and polite and did accommodate special requests. The server explicitly asked for dietary restrictions upfront and accommodated modifications. We tried the roasted butternut squash, it certainly is a must try if you plan on having a no meat day :). It had the perfect combination of cream and nuts. We couldnt try the dessert but they looked real yummy.
Kindred was an ideal dining experience for our group of five including out-of-towners and our 10-year old son. The food was incredible (only one miss out of eleven dishes), the drinks superb, and the service and ambiance were top tier. Our experience felt fun, relaxed, and luxurious. We will return again and again from Concord to enjoy all seasons via the Kindred menu.
We had an amazing experience. Set outside so we didnt have to wait, and we never had to wait for anything. Our server Mallory was amazing. The food was five star! Cannot blame them for the heat or the bugs but they kept the ice coming!
The bread, crispy oysters, grandfathers pickles, squid ink pasta, and milk bread cinnamon roll were all delicious! We had a cocktail and mocktail and it was good as well. A nice vibe! The service was also great!
