Dining Around the Desert: Kitchen 86 + Bar

We are very excited to announce the Opening of the long awaited Kitchen 86 on El Paseo. They are a Modern Eclectic Small Plate Restaurant in the old Wolfgang Puck space.

Locally owned & locally grown - Kitchen 86 is a fantastic, welcoming spot to gather and enjoy an eclectic menu of modern, curated small plate continental cuisine. Using local, organic ingredients, offerings include a tableside cheese wheel pasta, house-made curry, ramens, wood-fired pizzas, plenty of entree selections and shareable small plates.

Kitchen 86 is open daily for lunch and stays open for late night guests with an impressive, rotating list of specials and a happy hour. Creative cocktails, craft beer and extensive wine list paired with the ambient dining area and lively bar makes this the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the best of what El Paseo has to offer.

I have been lucky enough to enjoy the experience several times now in the past couple of weeks that they’ve been open.

The first time, I had the Beet Salad and the Cheese Wheel Pasta, both were excellent! The Spanish blend red wine was also very good.

This past week, our party of 5 enjoyed the Boom Boom Shrimp, Kitchen 86 flatbread, and Crispy Calamari to start. We then had Scampi, the Chicken, and the house Curry.

We enjoyed a variety of libations including a perfectly made Old Fashioned, a nice selection of Red wine, and a couple of really interesting vodka coffee drinks.

Following dinner we all shared some Cannoli which were light and crisp and the perfect finish.

The service was good, the food was excellent, the drinks well made, and the company was delightful! We will be back.
