Restaurant Review of Matthew’s Kitchen
A few months ago I took my Gigi (grandma) out to lunch at Matthew’s Kitchen since it’s near her apartment, and ever since, it has become our favorite lunch spot. The food is deemed “comfort food with a twist” and the atmosphere in the restaurant is equally comfortable and modern. This was my lunch, the ultimate grilled cheese, which consists of swiss, cheddar, and parmesan cheeses (the parmesan is deliciously baked into the bread, as you can see), tomatoes, and applewood smoked bacon on sour dough bread. The sandwich was so good I ate the whole thing without setting it back down on my plate. It comes with a heaping pile of seriously amazing homemade chips as well as your choice of any of their soups or salads to start. All for $9!! Gigi got the philly cheese steak sandwich which consisted of ribeye, poblano peppers and onions, and provel cheese on a hoagie. She started with a cup of tomato soup that was thick and hearty, while I chose the spinach salad with strawberries, feta, red onions, and balsamic dressing. Everything was scrumptious and I give Matthew’s a rave review. Another menu item I tried last time I was there was the original “not pizza” flatbread. It was an interesting combination of flavors with tons of caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, feta, and balsamic drizzle, and we enjoyed it, although I don’t plan to order it again. I have only gone to Matthew’s for lunch, but the restaurant has variety of entrées on their dinner menu that sound great. They offer their signature pig wings which I’d love to try as well. It’s located at 5265 Hampton Avenue, Saint Louis, MO 62109 and they’re open Tuesday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday and Saturday 11am-11pm, and Sunday 10am-8pm.
