You Asked, We Answered: Sharing our New Menu with our Guests
Just because we make delicious, scratch-made food look easy doesn’t mean it is. The fact is, at Kings we’re borderline obsessed with delivering a dining experience to rival an evening at any luxury gastro, yet still have the satisfying, shareable favorites perfect for fueling a night out with friends or family. It’s walking that line between the gourmet and the “stick to your ribs” that makes the food from our scratch kitchen truly unique and satisfying for every palate - and with the debut of our new menu, we’re rolling some of our most delicious creations yet.
The Method Behind the Menu
When our executive chefs started thinking about overhauling our menu, it was never about fixing something broken: Dining has always been an integral part of the Kings experience (it’s in our name, after all) and our goal to elevate the traditional restaurant experience and put quality on the menu. That’s why we’re never content to rest on our laurels; our menu is always evolving as we add seasonal flavors, revamp recipes, and look for ways to integrate freshness and flavor.
This time, we turned to feedback from our guests to guide us as we reworked our menu. One of the things we heard loudest and most often was that our guests loved being able to share an evening of fun and entertainment with a group of their closest friends, family or co-workers. With that in mind, our new menu items are designed around a shared dining experience: delicious, homemade appetizers and finger-foods, pizza, sliders, bites and plenty of dishes ready to be split between groups of guests and washed down with a towering ice cold beer or crafty cocktail.
Don’t Mind if I Fondue
What’s more fun and communal than fondue? Kings offers experiential dining you can’t find anywhere else with our new fondue plates - starting with the Vegetarian Tomato Bisque Fondue served with Focaccia, Fried Mac & Cheese, Handmade mozzarella sticks and Grilled Cheese; the Buffalo Chicken Dip with nacho chips, carrots and celery; capping off with an over the top decadent Chocolate Dessert Fondue. These warm, satisfying dips are built for sharing and will keep toasty, even as you focus on the lanes and games.
Snacks to the Max
Our appetizers and shareable bites have been taken to new heights: Those looking for something fresh and healthy to munch on can enjoy Edamame, served with garlic and red paper. Looking for something a little more hearty, but still healthy? Our fresh Bruschetta features a blend of ripe plum tomatoes, premium whole milk mozzarella, homemade pesto and EVOO served over grilled focaccia that is made in-house daily.
For a more substantive dish, we are introducing a house smoked and seared Crispy Pork Belly BLT, which will have a honey mustard sauce drizzle over seasoned fried tomatoes. We’ve made the “Impossible” possible with the Impossible™ Cheeseburger Empanadas, filled with the delicious plant-based meat alternative, cheeses and stuffed in a flaky empanada and served with secret sauce.
Bigger Bites and Select Sides
Next up, we have equally shareable (albeit more substantial) bites in the form of House Smoked Pulled Pork Sliders and our new Philly Tuna Bites. Layered with soy ginger tuna, seasoned cream cheese, avocado, edamame, carrots, wonton crackers and wasabi cream, these Tuna Bites are healthy, creavable and look almost too good to eat. If you want to kick things up a notch, you can get your tuna fix either as a Tuna Poke Bowl or Tuna Tacos as well.
Meanwhile, the sides are coming off the sidelines: We are offering a luxurious, creamy Tomato Bisque (perfect for pairing with our Luxury Grilled Cheese with Gruyere, Sharp Cheddar, Swiss, Fontina cheese and arugula with an herbed spread on sourdough bread), as well as two kickin’, takes on seasoned fries: Either the peppery Nashville Fries or the Mediterranean-inspired Spicy Garlic Parmesan Fries.
Flavorful Family Dining
Our family dining options have seen some of the most dramatic changes. For the more sophisticated parental palates, we are introducing Grilled Mediterranean Chicken or Shrimp with Fresh Seasoned Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, Fresh Mozzarella, Roasted Seasoned Potatoes and Feta Arugula Salad. This dish is a lighter, healthier and flavor-packed option for Mom, Dad or a more adventurous Junior.
Bringing along little ones with a slightly less expansive palate? No problem: All kids’ meals now include a drink, snack and entree with side for one low price and have kid-tested and approved favorites like Toasted PB&J Uncrustables™, Grilled Chicken or Cheeseburger Sliders, and honest-to-goodness Kraft™ Mac & Cheese.
These are just a smattering of the mouth-watering new dishes debuting on our updated menu - we’re still serving our time-tested favorites like burgers, brick oven pizzas, steak tips, wings and more. To check out our menu and make a reservation for you and your closest, get in touch today!
