So I finally went to Kitchen 1924 last weekend, and shame on me for waiting this long. Ironically, I used to live in that neighborhood, but now I reside in Midway Hollow (A Treasure To Keep!). But I digress. What I wanted to mention—and, Sarah, forgive me if you reported this in your revisit a few months back—is that there was a note on the door, explaining that the prices had been lowered to keep the neighbors coming back for dinner. As you know, I’ve been on a bit of a rampage lately, because I think there are too many restaurants in town that don’t warrant their price points. And, interestingly, before I went out that night, a friend of mine (a longtime Lakewood denizen) was lamenting that he thought the prices at Kitchen 1924 were a bit high. Well, Neal, it’s time you go back. For example, a tilapia entree is $13. (Compare that to the $12 quesadillas at Mi Cocina. IJS.) My portion of the bill was just north of $30, including wine and tip. We shared spinach and artichoke dip with crabmeat; flatbread pizza with prosciutto, salami, and pepperoni; a side of smoked gouda grits and another of mac and cheese with peas and bacon (could have done without the peas); and three salads (two wedges and one spicy Caesar). True, it wasn’t the kind of meal to make your trainer proud, but we left pleased as punch—rather than pissed off that we’d spent too much.
