Ah. Yes. Comfort food.
I have found it difficult to find vegetarian options when considering this type of food. So I went to Kitchenette this week in order to find some eats that would be suitable for my special diet. Although not everything was vegetarian/vegan, I still looked at some great options.

When you first walk into this restaurant, you see polka-dotted tables with mismatched chairs. It’s absolutely adorable, and there is really a sense of home when you step inside. I feel like this atmosphere makes the restaurant all the more unique. This off-kilter nature made me feel so welcome and warm.
Kitchenette is often a great place for brunch, even if I went for dinner. The menu is extremely extensive and holds many kinds of comfort food (many of which do not contain meat).
I ordered mac n cheese, and it was HUGE. The portion is so large, considering the price. My friends ordered kale salad, biscuit sandwiches, and meatloaf, and they were all satisfied. Although there are foods that are non-vegetarian, there are still so many options for people like me. Here are some of the vegetarian/vegan options available.
Kale and Brussel Sprout Cesar
KMC (Mac n Cheese)
Herb and Goat Cheese Omelet
Fancy Grilled Cheese
Cookie Jar Milkshakes
Veggie Eggplant Meatballs
Sweet Potato Pancakes
Field Green Salad
Stuffed Acorn Squash
Vegan Veggie Club
Vegan Chickpea Burger
And many many more
I ordered the KMC, which contained three different types of cheese. It was crispy on the outside and crunchy on the inside, which was exactly what I needed. Since the mac n cheese was very gooey and heavy, I just wish that it came with a side of veggies of some kind. However, the meal was overall a success, and I would still recommend the food!
Kitchenette, located on 123rd street, gets a solid 4 Bobby Flays!
See you next time!
