I came to NC for vacation, and to visit some friends. Kindred came highly recommended and did NOT disappoint! I cant remember the names of the dishes but none fell short of delicious! The menu is set up to encourage sharing so you can try a lot of different dishes. We ended up getting 6 different appetizers and each ordered our own meal. Everything was absolutely amazing! Service and drinks were great too. Definitely put it on your list if youre in the area.

We went to Kindred for the first time last night. Every dish was thoughtfully created with fresh local ingredients and you could tell from the flavors. The drinks were fantastic as well and I highly recommend trying one of the cocktails. We really enjoyed the family style plates which made it fun and easy to try a lot of different amazing dishes. We can't wait to go back!

Such a lovely restaurant. I always love eating here when in town. The bread here is so satisfying and warms your palette for the rest of the wonderful courses to come. Small plates are served here so be prepared to order a couple. The salads here are world class and I never dine here without having one.

Superb! Every thing from the milk bread to the last bit of food on the table was amazing. The service was wonderful. We had several items : squid ink conchiglie ( sooo good), soft shell crab, scallops, oysters that could have melted in you mouth. Oh, and don't forget to order extra bread!!!! If you save room for dessert the chocolate birthday cake is my recommendation! It is also a great stop for drinks!
