That dinner was sold out within seconds of the email going out.

Luckily, I was able to grab a table off the waitlist at 6pm. Anyone else going?

I did not manage to get a table off the waitlist. Sad.

Wish I would have seen this earlier. On social media today they announced that they would open tables at Metier, and I saw at least one walk-in.

Pop up note on their website:

Dine In Service Will Be Unavailable Starting Tuesday, March 17

To Go Service Will Be Offered Beginning Wednesday, March 18

Given the mandate issued by the DC government, Kinship and Métier will be closed until further notice. This is an effort to navigate uncertain times and to protect our team members, guests and community.

Equinox is open and delivering really fantastic meals.  They're putting out a weekly menu and you order directly from them and they deliver it.  (No messing around with a delivery service--from what I can tell, they're using their own staff to try to keep them employed.)  We went all out last night and got four courses each (so much food!)  We especially loved the fusilli and the jambalaya (smokey and satisfying), but it was all really good.  

I'd also like to put a plug in for the jambalaya at Kinship (which isn't being served this week, I just checked the menu), having had both the chicken and the jambalaya for take-out. The jambalaya kept really well overnight in the fridge (and it's really something of a seafood paella when you reheat it in the oven). The chicken isn't what you'd get while dining inside (you get a whole, uncut chicken, and the leg meat isn't mixed into a salad, although you get (strangely good) iceburg lettuce with world-class dressing (it has sweetness from preserved orange). Eric helped bring my food out the other night - damn he can cook (he's apparently changing part of the menu each week!), but I can tell he has been shaken by this situation. Also, the $40 white wine is great, and the $40 red wine was too (and I don't say that often about California reds). I'll tell you what though: The breast meat of that chicken (which you'll need to carve off), with the lemon-garlic panade underneath the skin, is just as good as what you get in the restaurant, and the pommes rissolées are also (you may need to reheat both in the oven).

I LOVED the jambalaya. I will go back for it when its on the menu again!

Do they have any delivery options or are they pickup only?  

Pickup only, Wed-Sat evenings. They sell out early (they're probably sold out for this week), so it's best to reserve early in the week.

Ugh, I went to pick up my food a couple nights ago, and it was so sad to walk inside - only one young cashier working in a darkish restaurant, and boxes of wine piled on top of the bar.

That is sad.  Our last pre-lockdown meal was there.  We didn't have a reservation, but had a feeling it we might be able to sneak in for an early meal at the bar and were right to think it might be a while before we were able to have another night out.  It looks like they're sold out for tonight, but can take a couple more orders tomorrow.  Kinship is a treasure and has an exceptional staff -- I hope they're all doing ok and can get back to regular business before too long.

Thought it might give each other ideas based on where and what you're ordering for take-out or delivery.  

We had Kinship's "Date Night" menu over the weekend. It was pricey, but we got our Friday and Saturday nights' dinners out of it, plus a Sunday snack! It even came with a candle, which I almost didn't use (until I remembered where I put my taper-candle holder when I moved here three years ago).

The food was fabulous, and it even came with plating/reheating instructions. It made the weekend feel like a weekend, for a change!

In anticipation of a carry out birthday dinner for my son tonight, here's some pics from way back on March 7th when he was home for spring break (longest spring break ever!).  I don't remember much on the specifics, but the meal was a great success and all the dishes were great and unique!

Lobster Stuffed Skate Wing - Pommes Boulangere, Melted Leeks and Watercress Gratin

Crepinette of Lamb Saddle - Cumin Roasted Carrots, Fregola and Spiced Pepper Sauce

Panko Crusted Black Bass - Shiitake Mushrooms, Yellow Chives, Garlic Chives, and Mushroom Consomme

The food looked better than the photos

Here are some photos from Apr 24 (Date Night dinner for two) and May 16 (a simple two-course). Both the steak and tuna were great; the photos of them not so much:

These look amazing, remind me of our first Kinship to go, and have my mouth watering for the dinner we just ordered for tomorrow.  

I think I forgot to post about our first Kinship to go.  I'll just say that the chicken travels very well and that the personal touches that make Kinship so special somehow come through with the take out experience including some really detailed and thoughtful instructions for how to easily reheat and plate the meal at home.  Kinship has always been one of our favorite spots and it continues to be so during this period of take out only.

We ordered their 5 course take out date night this past Friday. Everything was labeled and marked so well. They even email you with final plating and assembly instructions. The only clustfcuk was managing the 20 or so folks all instructed to show up at the same time to pick up orders, but in the end all was well.

Let me tell you, it was quite fine. That said, for two people, indulgent stay at home date night or not it was way to much for two people, both of us helthy eaters. No matter, it mde for a good snack the next day and a warmed up delicious lunch earlier this week.

I'd do it again but just order what I wanted instead of So.Much.Food.

This week you wouldn't have been so fortunate:

Oh, that's too bad. We were hoping to order again soon. I hope all is well with them.

I think/hope everything is well with them, but they just didn't want to put employees or customers in harm's way trying to get to and from Kinship.  That's the way I read it anyway.

I completely support the (peaceful) protesters, but my heart bleeds for these poor restaurants who are fighting a crisis on at least three fronts:  shutdown due to the virus, government inaction and ineptitude and now riots in the streets.

I think that is probably correct, and I agree with you.
