Like its predecessor, the sit-down, stand-alone restaurant will offer Cincinnati-area diners what the company calls a fresh take on comfort food. The restaurant is scheduled to open in the fall in Anderson Township, about a dozen miles southeast of downtown Cincinnati.
Kroger opened its first Kitchen 1883 in November in the Cincinnati suburb of Union, Ky.
The restaurants (named after the year Kroger was founded) feature a made-from-scratch menu inspired by American and international flavors, handcrafted cocktails and a community-centered atmosphere, Kroger said in a statement.
“With Kitchen 1883, our vision is to create a gathering place that offers a casual atmosphere for guests to relax and experience food,” said Daniel Hammer, Kroger’s vice president of culinary development and new business. “Since opening our pilot restaurant five months ago, we’ve discovered new ideas that will help to shape our future dining concepts and in-store fresh food experiences.”
