KitchenBar is one of the newest and most delicious additions to Providence’s thriving Hope Street community, serving great food at great prices. The sleek restaurant offers an impressive, varied selection of contemporary Mediterranean cuisine for lunch and dinner daily.

Owner Sammy Katsaras has been running successful restaurants in Rhode Island for over 30 years. A Greek immigrant who takes a lot of pride in knowing his life’s dream has employed dozens of people throughout the years, including the oldest of his four children, Sammy’s restaurants have always had a remarkable customer following. Sammy’s Pizzeria was a Hope Street mainstay for years, serving up distinctive hand-tossed pizzas and calzones. When a space next door opened up in 2011, Sammy decided to expand into it and create a sophisticated yet casual eatery. With a variety of Greek signature dishes and a modern take on comfort food, the neighborhood eatery has become a favorite for families and foodies alike.

Menu favorites include the housemade meatloaf, lamb burger, steak frites and build your own calzones and pizzas. The Dakos Greek salad, a hearty mix of lettuces, cucumber, red onion, Kalamata olives, feta and their own tzatziki sauce, is a one of the authentic specialty dishes here. The lounge area, an intimate bar where guests can enjoy shared plates over conversation, also offers creative cocktails and a full bar. With a focus on fresh ingredients delivered daily, fairly priced food, friendly service and a casual yet upscale setting, KitchenBar continues to be a dining destination in the capital city.
