In other words, when locals aren't eating at one of the three Next Door restaurants -- in Boulder, Glendale and the newest location in Union Station -- where do they go? "We probably do compete with fast casuals [in Glendale], and Modmarket down the road," says Musk.
Competing with fast casuals? A decade ago, who would've predicted that this is where the Kitchen crew would end up? Not that it's a bad extension for the brand, but it's just such a departure from where the local, seasonal, high-end bistro started.
Does Next Door Glendale feel more like the Kitchen or more like the other fast casuals in CitySet, albeit with a bar and sit-down service? Find out when my review of the Kitchen Next Door Glendale is posted here tomorrow.
