Kin Southern Table + Bar

71 Washington Street, Providence, R.I.

Follow the heavenly scent of freshly baked cornbread, fried-to-perfection catfish and collard greens and you’ll find yourself right at Kin’s front door. Located in downtown Providence, Kin is a place for good food and family. In fact, owner Julia Broome named the restaurant as such so that everyone who enjoyed a meal there feels like they belong, just like family.

Broome opened Kin after just a year of planning amidst the pandemic, when she decided to follow her lifelong dream of opening a restaurant. Inspired by watching her mother and great-grandmother cook growing up, Broome’s vision for Kin became a reality in March 2021. These days, Kin’s still serving up a mouthwatering menu and has created a space that feels just as homey as the food is delicious.

Joining the ranks of other superb soul food spots in the Northeast, Kin establishes its own embodiment of Southern comfort food with flavorful takes on classic dishes like po boys, blackened salmon, mac and cheese and candied sweet potatoes. Come for brunch on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and sample all the sweet and savory offerings from shrimp and grits to Fruity Pebble French toast. If lunch and brunch aren’t enough, Kin also hosts After Hours on Saturday evenings that features local DJs and a special mini menu. Events like R&B sing-along brunches and trivia also grace their space, so make sure to check their calendar each month and reserve your spot in advance.

Our recommendation: Don’t miss the Chicken + Waffles and collard greens with just the right amount of kick. They were out of biscuits when we visited, but we’ll be back to try!
