A new restaurant from Boston Nightlife Ventures is creeping ever closer to debuting its Southern fare at Assembly Row in Somerville. Southern Kin Cookhouse is about a month out from opening, according to a recent post on its Facebook page, and it's now hiring employees.
The restaurant at 500 Assembly Row needs experienced bartenders, hosts, servers, line cooks, and support staff to get things up and running, per a Craigslist post. Southern Kin has shared photos of its future dishes on social media, including a frogmore stew made with assorted seafood; fried catfish; and all manner of decadent pies.
BNV beverage director Michael Boughton will take charge of the restaurant's bar program, which will lean heavily in a whiskey direction, as previously reported. Best of luck choosing from more than 100 American whiskeys, including around 50 Kentucky bourbons and an array of rye, corn, oat, wheat, and single malt options.
The restaurant is also set accommodate 60 on an outdoor patio, just in time for summer dining. When it opens, Southern Kin will operate Monday through Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 12 a.m., Thursday and Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 a.m.
In other Assembly Row news, Mike's Pastry is also coming to the Somerville development, but that won't happen until next year.
