CINCINNATI (Cincinnati Business Courier) - Kroger Co. is expanding its standalone restaurant concept to a second location.

Cincinnati-based Kroger (NYSE: KR), the nation’s largest operator of traditional supermarkets, plans to open its second Kitchen 1883 in Anderson Township this fall. It opened the first Kitchen 1883 – its first full-service restaurant – next to its supermarket in Union, Ky., in November.

The Anderson location will have a patio and feature new, local dishes, Kroger said in a news release. It will be open daily for lunch and dinner and serve brunch on weekends.

Kitchen 1883 – it’s named after the year Barney Kroger founded his namesake grocery company in downtown Cincinnati – features a made-from-scratch menu and hand-crafted cocktails. The Union location has wraps, a burger, craft beer-battered cod using locally made Braxton Brewing beer, pork tenderloin, crab remoulade salad and an appetizer called roasted cauli-sprouts on the menu, among others. It also features regular specials. Entree prices range from $10 to $18, with most $13 and under.
