Kitchen on K Street from Chef Gillian Clark coming to 3rd & K St NE

A great food week for the H Street Corridor continues with this news that Chef Gillian Clark is going to open a restaurant this spring at 3rd and K St NE (inside the Loree Grand Building at 250 K St NE).  Chef Clark is a bit of a legend from the since-closed Colorado Kitchen and especially well-known for her fried chicken, biscuits, roast chicken, pork chops, shrimp and grits, and donuts.  Her brunches, in particular, were the stuff of legends on the Colordo Kitchen thread over on, so this is another very good bit of restaurant news for the neighborhood.  Kitchen on K Street will be open for three meals a day.

The full NoMa BID press release follows:
Chef Gillian Clark plans to open a new neighborhood restaurant in NoMa at Third and K Streets, NE, in the Loree Grand at Union Place. “Kitchen on K Street” will open in April or May, bringing back the popular Colorado Kitchen concept Clark is known for. Clark also runs the General Store restaurant in Silver Spring.
Kitchen on K Street will be a full-service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as offering a bar with counter seating. Clark chose the NoMa spot for its neighborhood feel and history – the Loree Grand is named in honor of Loree Murray, a longtime Northeast resident and community leader. “We saw the building and where it was – what it represents for the neighborhood in the naming of the Loree Grand,” Clark said. “It’s a new building, but has the neighborhood feel and charm of an older building.”
“We’re very excited to have the space leased to a local chef with a strong reputation,” said Eric Siegel of the Cohen Companies, which owns the Loree Grand in as Union Place Phase I LLC. “Chef Gillian Clark chose this location because she wanted to be in a residential neighborhood and part of a community.”
Kitchen on K Street will seat nearly 100 people inside and about 25 in outdoor seating on the patio. Clark plans to expand the Colorado Kitchen menu, featuring roasted chicken, meatloaf, doughnuts, and weekend brunches. “Imagine Betty Crocker gone Cordon Bleu,” she said. Hours will most likely run from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., 11 p.m. on weekends.
