Inside Scoop: ( For the last several months (, Kinfolk has been popping up regularly for brunch and dinner at 903 Cortland. Well, it’s moving up.

The chef-owner behind the project is Greg Lutes, and he’s finally found a permanent location — and as it turns out, it’s just a few doors down from 903.

Lutes has inked a deal to take over 919 Cortland Avenue, which was most recently home to Pizza Express, though it’s currently home to a dirt floor. After a full build-out, Kinfolk is hoped to open this summer, with 40 seats — double the size of its set-up at 903.

Lutes describes his cooking at Kinfolk as American and Californian; at his pop up, he offers both in an a la carte or in a tasting menu format ($70 is the current price tag). To get an idea of the kind of food that Kinfolk has been doing, check out the recent menus on the website (
