If you judge a new restaurant by the dynamic energy, the sheer charisma, of its owner, then Kitchen 1924 is gonna be a hoppin joint. Owner Shawn Horne has racked up time at Star Canyon, Aquaknox, Abacus, Green Room, York Street, & Ferre, wears avant-garde glasses, and has an enunciating style so clear, he comes off as sharp as a tack. Kitchen 1924 is in the Lakewood space vacated by La Dolce Vita, and the food will be um "eclectic seasonal comfort food". No sign of a menu yet, but the chef is Edward Mendoza, who was at lola & nana. The remodel includes a room devoted to communal dining, but Horne knew enough to leave La Dolce Vita’s A+ pizza oven right where it was.
1924 Abrams, 214-821-1924. Opening early January 06
