New Restaurant Comes To Brooklyn Arts District

By Justin Pope Williams, posted Sep 29, 2021
When Alicia Mitchell opens her new restaurant The Kitchen Sink in October, she will bring something new to the Brooklyn Arts District: a lunchtime soup and sandwich shop.
The new eatery aimed to attract audiences of all ages hopes to bring something new with its menu and comforting with its space to the neighborhood.
“I’ve always loved people and serving people,” said Mitchell, who spent 20 years in the world of pharmaceuticals before jumping into the restaurant business.
A chemistry major in college, she says there is a kinship between chemistry and cooking.
“You are always putting things together in chemistry, and it’s the same with cooking, you are always putting ingredients together and seeing what works and what doesn’t work,” Mitchell said.
Kitchen Sink’s menu will include an array of soups, sandwiches and salads. Side items include mac and cheese and candied bacon.
Mitchell said lots of thought went into the menu, and many of the items are some of her family favorites served at her own table through the years. She said that coming from an Italian heritage, good food has always been an important part of her family’s table.
“My desire and passion to cook came from my parents,” she said, adding that her favorites on the menu include a Cheddar Ale and Greek lemon couscous as well as a meatball sandwich.
Mitchell said that seasonal items will also play a major role in the Kitchen Sink’s flavor.

Mitchell has plans for The Kitchen Sink to be engaged with the community at large. She plans to institute a 12-month program in conjunction with the local organization Vigilant Hope to help someone who may want a better path for their life as well as with Voyage of Wilmington.

“I want to help someone be better if they can and want to be. These programs are meant to help people get back on their feet and be empowered,” she said.
Mitchell tentatively plans to open the second week of October.
