Ken & Cook Needs a Copy Editor for its Brunch Menu

Posted November 6, 2013 at 6:00 am

One Boogie reader dined brunch at Ken & Cook this weekend, and sent along this snapshot of their menu alongside the caption, “gracious spellcheck.” Apparently the restaurant owners at 19 Kenmare opted against copy editing before running to press.

Travertine and its loud late-night clientele never sat right with locals. Its successor at 19 Kenmare isn’t much better, either.

For instance, there is still no certificate of occupancy for 19 Kenmare Street, the sidewalk […]
