Having worked through a number of the city’s most notable restaurants and private clubs, chefs Arron Rhodes and Chris Grare joined forces earlier this year to test their friendship in a new venture with Kinship, opened this summer. The family meal-oriented restaurant has taken space within a new building in Soho, and we visited the new establishment with the hopes of feeling the camaraderie through international-inspired dishes, and their perceived good value.
Kinship adopts a casual vibe for its interiors and ambience. An abundance of dark wooden tones can be seen throughout the square space, equipped with a well-stocked bar adjacent to a small semi-open kitchen, where guests can witness the action. The dining room takes on a homely setting, with comfortable long sofas set against wooden furnishings that can be a little bit tight with little elbow room from the neighbouring table. Kinship’s vibe stays casual, with pop and soft rock played throughout the course of meal times, flowing through table conversations.
