Kindling will feature a large wood-burning grill and rotisserie that will serve as the hearth and the heart of the restaurant's main floor. The kitchen will be helmed by Jonathon Sawyer, who won the Beard Award for Best Chef: Great Lakes in 2015 for his work at The Greenhouse Tavern, Noodlecat, and Trentina in Cleveland. Most recently, Chef Sawyer oversaw the Four Season's Adorn Restaurant & Bar. Many of his restaurants centered around live-fire cooking and Kindling will have a 13-1/2' of live-fire grill.

The restaurant will have room for 500 total, with a second-floor terrace debuting in the spring along Adams Street. There are three bars in all, overseen by The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group's Director of Beverage and Bar Operations, Julieta Campos. Opening is scheduled for early January in 2023.

You can expect craft cocktails from beverage director Julieta Campos as well as curated artwork and lawn games on the 5,000 SF second floor, outdoor terrace.
