The food that comes out of the Living Kitchen is fresh, simple, honest, healthy and local. With short-end preparation times, simple ingredients and limited preparation steps, our assortment is incredibly intelligent and facilitates fast service.

Reflecting the belief that we are what we eat, our kitchen aims to physically energize, appeal to the senses and nourish the soul. Our food is prepared in an open kitchen and served on long communal tables – ideal for salt passing and idea swapping.
