Everyday Kitchen (552 E. Market Street in NuLu) was featured in the Fall 2021 (Vol. 71) edition of Food & Dining Magazine.

Everyday Kitchen (evening) and Everyday Kitchen Café (breakfast and lunch) are two interrelated components of Lodgic Everyday Community in the building dubbed “Gateway to NuLu,” and in turn, Lodgic is an initiative of Moose International (the Loyal Order of Moose), offering various forms of fully equipped co-working space as well as flexible child care for today’s new breed of untethered on-demand worker, along with event coordination and other related services.

Fast forwarding to July, 2022, we find that Tim Johnson has taken over the kitchen from the departed Mike Wajda, and Everyday Kitchen will be launching new breakfast, lunch and dinner menus later this month under the rubric Everyday Kitchen, Reimagined: “The fare connects everyday food to everyone with dishes inspired by the staff’s familial traditions.”

The café offers modern comfort food for breakfast and lunch at an affordable price point, while the facility’s full-service restaurant Everyday Kitchen provides farm-to-table dining during dinner hours.

An information release offers highlights; today’s cover photo depicts the reimagined Hot Brown.
