Southern Kin Cookhouse
Mixing the old with the new, Southern Kin’s interior reaches to the past with authentic materials, like reclaimed wood & rustic brick, and puts a modern twist on plaid with a color palette of Carolina blue and Acid green. Simple farm style furniture and design details run throughout and the space whilst boards of inset light timber crisscross the modulated cement floor.
Situated in Somerville’s recently developed Assembly Row neighborhood, Southern Kin Cookhouse is a 172 cover American restaurant showcasing the very best of classic Southern cooking, culture and hospitality.
Inspired by the hard-working farm-to-table culture of the American South, Southern Kin showcases an expansive dining space flooded with natural light and rustic natural materials which perfectly reflect the warmth of southern hospitality. The bar is a statement in itself, with an American flag painted on top of rustic brick providing a focal point and a modulating reclaimed wood front, setting the tone for the mid-century inspired space.

Quarter turn pallets of rough wood lend personality to the ceiling while helping to control noise, and industrial fans both look great & keep the air circulating. Large divided glass windows swing open to the street, creating flow between outdoors and indoors and an open kitchen adds to the energetic buzz.
