“Kroger Co., one of America’s leading supermarkets, is opening its very first restaurant near the company’s Cincinnati headquarters. Kitchen 1883 — a name chosen in homage to the year Barney Kroger founded the retailer — will serve comfort food from a “made from scratch menu” alongside hand-crafted cocktails in a family friendly atmosphere, according to an online job posting.
‘Our ‘New American Comfort’ menu is a melting pot of American and international flavors,’ the company said in a statement on its website. ‘Kitchen1883 [sic] is about the community and the foods they love. It’s about gathering to celebrate life over food that speaks to the soul.’” The Daily Meal
