These New Restaurants Are Spicing up Kingston’s Food Scene

From a swanky Euro-style bistro to a craft cocktail lounge with Asian bites, here are Kingston’s newest arrivals.

Brickmen Kitchen + Bar

A gastropub with a little bit of everything—salads, build-your-own burgers, and sandwiches for lunch and steaks, noodle bowls, and a seafood-sushi bar for dinner. 47 North Front Street

Camp Kingston

Created to feel like a summer camp for adults, this café-bar is perfect for coffee with coworkers, playing arcade games and sipping on a beer or two, or grabbing a sandwich to-go. 36 St. James Street

One of three new ventures by the team behind High Falls’ Ollie’s Pizza (the other two are Fletcher & Lu and Ollie’s Slice Shop), Eliza is a dinner-only spot with a simple but elevated menu. Share tapas like grilled olives and rice grits; go for the fish & chips entrée. 582 Broadway

Lone Wolf

Former Fuchsia Tiki Bar (New Paltz) owners Anton Kinloch and Lisa Dy bring inventive cocktails—try the pandan old fashioned—and Asian bar bites (from bao buns to spicy tuna crispy rice) to the space that once housed Lis Bar. On Sundays, stop by for special tropical drinks and mocktails. 240 Foxhall Avenue

Los Jalapeños

This Mexican eatery beloved by SUNY New Paltz students opened a second location in northern Kingston. Expect the same authentic menu of delicious guac, tacos (grilled shrimp is a fave), and flautas. 772 Ulster Avenue


Come here for great tapas from Andalusia, the region along Spain’s southern coast. Pair Spanish sherry or vermouth with patatas bravas, fried shishito peppers in chili oil, razor clam conserva, and grilled head-on prawns. 636 Broadway

Ollie’s Slice Shop

New York City-style slices and pies with your choice of cheese/sauce (cheese, white, vodka, tomato, vegan, Sicilian, gluten-free) and over 15 types of toppings. Plus, there’s meatball heroes, two types of salad, and garlic knots. 580 Broadway

Salt Box

This two-floor dive bar with retro furniture and cabaret accents serves up affordable draft and canned beers—plus some no-frills cocktails—and snacks like tater tots and tinned fish with crackers. Plus they’re open daily until 3 a.m. 10 Crown Street

Urban Fork

Comfort food (we’re talking chicken and biscuits, mac ‘n ’ cheese, chili egg rolls) is done right at Urban Fork’s second location in Uptown. Bonus: the new spot offers weekend brunch. 288 Wall Street

Coming Soon

Be on the lookout for Nightswim—a sleek bar with pub food (like smash burgers) in the former The Anchor space—and Unicorn Bar, a queer-friendly spot that will host live music and other performances.
