Kitchen 4140

You know you’re getting the freshest ingredients possible when you glance over and get a whiff of an organic herb garden growing next to your table. Kitchen 4140 is an authentic farm-to-table restaurant that looks to push boundaries in everything they do. Recently named one of the "Top 50 Restaurant Gardens in the Country" by USA Today, this local gem is a leader in “ingredient-inspired” dishes. Owner-chef Kurt Metzger is determined to use the newly expanded 1,200-square-foot garden to inspire the dishes he serves. Good news is, one of those dishes is a Mixed Berry Cobbler that will give you and your kiddos a reason to crave farm-fresh food. We love nutrition lessons like these!
