The King’s Kitchen in uptown reopens

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — After being temporary closed for months during the pandemic, The King’s Kitchen in uptown will resume dinner service beginning Friday.

The nonprofit restaurant that serves Southern cuisine from local farms and purveyors provides on-site life skills and leadership training program to get those in need back on their feet.

During its closure, the restaurant received minor upgrades, including new paint and tabletops. The restaurant’s larger renovation, which took place last winter, included a new patio, remodeled bathrooms, and new upholstery.

“Due to the prolonged closure beginning shortly after our renovation, our dining room and patio are virtually brand new,” assistant general manager Joseph Kirkland said in a news release.

The King’s Kitchen at 129 West Trade, will be open for dinner from 5-10 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 3-10 p.m. on Saturday.

Anyone who dines at the restaurant from July 9-24 can receive a complimentary appetizer.

Lunch service will be added as more employees return to uptown offices.
