An upscale suburban restaurant is undergoing a name change and is reopening with some other changes taking place as well.
According to a source, RFK Kitchen in Needham is becoming L&K in Needham, with the website for the latter saying that the Great Plain Avenue spot will have a grand reopening tomorrow (Thursday, December 28). The site mentions that Matthew Kovach is the new Executive Chef and that he is setting up a new menu that includes a new "Lounge bite program" along with a new cocktail menu.
RFK Kitchen first opened in the fall of 2016, with Rachel Klein (Liquid Art House, Asana, Aura, Tamo, OM) being behind the place. Klein is currently Executive Chef for Red Stripe, which has locations in Providence and East Greenwich, RI.
The address for L&K is 948 Great Plain Avenue, Needham, MA, 02492. Its website can be found at https://lnkneedham.com
