We live in Concord, and I can confidently say Kindred is our 1st choice for date night and by far our favorite restaurant in all of the Charlotte area. The staples for us (fried oysters, duck fat potatoes, squid ink pasta) are a must every time we visit, but I love how they rotate various new seasonal vegetable plates, pasta dishes etc. We order our staples then 2-3 of the new dishes on the menu each time we go! It makes each dinner fun fresh new and exciting! Do yourself a favor...if you ever see a beet dish pop up on the menu ORDER it! Weve had 3 very different ones and they were all equally as delicious! Bottom line? Kindred is pretty incredible & the chef absolutely lives up to his brilliant mad scientist in the kitchen nickname. GO. NOW! You wont regret it...
My husband and I absolutely love this place. We are foodies and have high expectations. Kindred lived up to the hype. We were so happy we could take our out of town guests to our Davidson gem! Highly recommended
Thought I did a review.. Great, eclectic eatery with pizzazz! Food is homemade with love. The owners and staff are fantastic. I sat at the bar and ate amongst strangers who became comrades. I had a creamed mixed greens appetizer that was excellent followed by homade pasta.. Tagliatelle with different kinds of mushrooms. It was absolutely delightful. Lastly, I consumed what seemed like an oddly paired dessert which ended up being heaven. I left the establishment full and content!
I have been debating offering a review of Kindred because our experience did not equal all the glowing reviews I had read online but have decided I must say something. Last August my partner and I had a friend visiting from Connecticut who happened to be intolerant of Gluten. We were served tap water after we were seated and to her surprise there was a considerable amount of dishwashing soap in the glass. After she gagged on the water I called the server over and asked for a replacement. He brought back different glasses and water but at no time was there an apology or offer of any compassion for our situation. Our guest was visibly distressed and although she took advantage of the gluten free items on the menu she was left with a bad taste in her mouth. I hope this was a one time occurrence but I will probably not be dining at Kindred again.
Fried oysters are crazy good. The salads are exceptional. But it was the personality and service of the bartenders that impressed us the most.
