Traveled from Central Kentucky to Charleston, WV to meet cousins for Easter Dinner. We reached Bluegrass Kitchen 2:45 pm and were told the Kitchen was closed. The place looked interesting. Don't know if we will go back.

Now that I've found this healthy and reasonably priced restaurant, being a vegetarian is so much easier, and I'm all about the menu - the chickpea salad, shrimp dish and eggs are amazing.

Charleston's authentic farm-to-table made-from-scratch modern comfort food restaurant. With a legion of chefs who caringly practice the art of food, BgK offers delicious brunch, dinner, and desserts for hungry vegetarians, meat connoisseurs, and everyone in-between. In the circa 1920 building with pressed tin ceilings and exposed architecture, Bluegrass also serves as a gallery for local artists. In the Tap room there's live original acoustic music most nights, with finely crafted cocktails, a curated wine list & a bounty of beers. Close to West Virginia's beautiful capitol grounds the family-owned and operated Bluegrass Kitchen has been featured in The New York Times and Wall Street Journal as well as Bon Appetit, Garden & Gun, Taste of the South magazines and many more.
