Kinmont: A User’s Guide
- Fish charcuterie, a unique platter with smoked trout rillette, salmon gravlax, tuna conserva, radish salad, whole-grain mustard, and grilled bread
- Rushing Waters trout, a menu staple with a rotating cast of supporting ingredients, which can include the likes of local beans, Nueske’s bacon, toasted almonds, and brown butter
- Grace’s Fizz craft cocktail with Brugal extra dry rum, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, lime, and ginger beer
Where to Sit: Mentioned in the Thrillist Outdoor Drinking Guide, a 40-seat sidewalk patio allows guests to enjoy their cocktails and rustic seafood dishes alfresco. If it’s too cold for dining outdoors, there’s always the copper-topped bar surrounded by Field & Stream-inspired decor.
When to Go:
Sunday nights. The restaurant often has special events like a crawfish boil or The Sunday Night Dinner Series when chef Aaron Cuschieri teams up with Spence Farm in Livingston County to craft a meal that highlights both the farm and Kinmont’s commitment to sustainable food.
