MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Kinship is much buzzed about, thanks in large part to Chef Eric Ziebold’s pedigree (he cut his teeth working with Thomas Keller). Along with his wife and partner Célia Laurent, Ziebold delivers inspired cuisine to a devoted following replete with urbane gastronomes and locals. The setting across from the convention center belies its style; the three-part space comprises a book-lined and fireplace-warmed lounge, intimate bar, and minimalist-chic dining room, all crafted by local designer, Darryl Carter. The à la carte menu isn't just a laundry list of offerings; it's a peek inside the chef's heart and mind. While selections from the "Ingredients" and "Indulgence" categories need no explanation, "Craft" items honor tradition and "History" selections pay tribute to his sentimental favorites. Pick and choose from the different themes for a bespoke tasting menu of dishes like turmeric-braised celtuce; butter-poached Maine lobster set atop house-made caramelized brioche for a lobster French toast; and duck ballotine over celery root "tagliatelle" in a cognac sauce. For a salty thrill of a dessert, fudgy Valrhona Guanaja custard cake is paired with pecan-praline ice cream and a buttery streusel.
