Forging Connections: Kinship is the exciting new collaboration between star chefs Arron Rhodes and Chris Grare that aims to make diners feel right at home — hence the name.

Look & Feel: Located on Shelley Street in Soho, Kinship is a casual space overlooking Tai Kwun with stylish, contemporary touches. Think dangling pendant lights, a bottle-green-tiled bar, and comfy leather seating you can sink right into.


On the Menu: Founders Grare and Rhodes both have a flair for rustic Western cuisine done up with elegant presentation, while a farm-to-table concept means that produce is sourced from local, family-run farms and suppliers whenever possible. There are dashes of Asian inspiration and ingredients here and there, too. Expect dishes like giant duck ravioli (slow-cooked duck leg, loi soi, scallions, ginger cream, $210), spiced seafood stew (charred lobster, black cod, sofrito, spätzle pasta, $298), and beef for two (NY strip with blue cheese potatoes and sauerkraut, $618).

Meet the Chefs: Kinship is the result of a collaboration between two chefs with equally impressive backgrounds. Grare (Lily & Bloom) takes up the role of executive chef, while Rhodes (Statement, Gough’s on Gough’s, Dot Cod) oversees front-of-house.

Great For: Good times over good food with family and friends.

FYI: Want a little bit of everything? Go for the family meal, a family-style tasting menu of four to five courses at $488 per person.
