After seeing some delicious looking pictures in a few blogs, I decided to make a reservation for brunch at the newly opened Kith and Kin in the Wharf area inside the Intercontinental Hotel. I almost canceled my reservation to make a reservation at Del Mar. I guess my sixth sense was telling me something!
We had a reservation for lunch at 11:30 a.m. We approached the hostess desk and was told that they were running late with their breakfast service and were setting up for the lunch service! What? We waited and waited and wondered if we should just leave and try our luck at the nearby Del Mar. Finally at 11:50, I asked the hostess if there was something wrong? Five minutes later she sat us down, two tables away from the door! The set up of the restaurant is odd. There is a long sitting area in front of the restaurant, probably so you could see the water. At no time she apologized or offered anything for the long wait. Our waiter was really helpful and professional though. I contacted the restaurant a couple of days later and told them about our experience. The guy I spoke to apologized and asked how the food was!

Kith Burger House ground double patties, American cheese, jerk bacon, romaine, caramelized onions, house pickles, garlic mayo
It was a good burger with two thin beef patties. The standout was the jerk bacon, it added a nice kick to the burger.

my husband loved the spicy fries.

Mushroom Forest Mushroom spread, charred eggplant dip, roasted mushrooms, crispy msmen
This dish was the reason I picked this place and thankfully it did not disappoint. The eggplant dip had plenty of spices and went well with the wild mushrooms. The pickled onions added visual contrast to the dish.

A great flaky buttery bread that came with the mushroom dish.

Mom Dukes Peel and Eat Shrimp Gulf shrimp, abita, citrus, butter
You got five shrimps sitting in a pool of spicy buttery sauce.

This sweet bread helped with the spicy shrimp.
