City Kitchen

The City Kitchen family welcomes you with wholesome American fare prepared through simple, time-honored cooking methods such as roasting, braising, preserving and smoking. The CK team is dedicated to the experience through locally sourced high quality products delivered with a warm genuine smile. This is the place you’ve been waiting for. Only friendlier. It’s that neighborhood watering hole Chapel Hill doesn’t have enough of, with the comfort and hearty abundance of the kitchen you grew up in. Every plate, every meal, every dessert we’ve created is a reflection of the flavors and techniques found across America (and abroad) that have given us inspiration. With our own twist.
