Kith & Kin Morphs Into Webster Street Cafe, Now Open

New, 11 comments

After abruptly closing a few weeks ago, Kith & Kin has emerged as the Webster Street Cafe. The restaurant, owned by brothers Moe and Ash Taleb, had a soft opening on July 1 and drew in strong crowds throughout the weekend, including brunch on both Saturday and Sunday.

Touting a much more simple and affordable menu than Kith & Kin, Webster Street Cafe, aka W Cafe, is open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. (11 p.m. on weekends), but does not take reservations. At brunch and lunch, look for items like a veggie omelet; breakfast pita (scrambled eggs, avocado, spinach, mushroom); steak and eggs; strawberry banana pancakes; smoked turkey wrap; Asian chicken salad; and the Webster Street Burger.

At dinner, appetizers and salads run from $5.95 to $9.95 and include items like bruschetta; mussels; caprese salad and a Granny Smith apple salad. Entrees average about $14 to $15 and include chicken piccata; skate wing in a lemon caper sauce with sauteed spinach; skirt steak; eggplant cavatappi with a spicy tomato sauce and goat cheese; and white fish with a mango passion puree.

With the more relaxed vibe, the bar will have a separate menu for a quick pop in. After 5 p.m., guests can get things like steak or fish tacos; fish and chips; a shrimp basket; a burger or mussels. Most items on the bar menu fall under $8.
