Kitchen 64 Restaurant Review

When you think of the North end of the Boulevard, up by the Diamond and under I-64, you’re not going to be inclined to think “let’s go grab a great meal!”  And you wouldn’t think that you’d find it in such an unassuming building. But think again. Kitchen 64 opened in 2007 as Johnny and […]

Flinn’s on North Ridge
