Thames Street Kitchen (TSK) Has An Amazing New Home

By  |  0 Comments

The crew behind TSK is taking up residence in one of Newport’s favorite restaurants.

Newport, RI has really missed Thames Street Kitchen (TSK). We know, because our interview with Julia Hoffer on why the restuarant closed still gets hits from Google. So we’ve got some really exciting news for all the TSK lovers out there. Just like the moment in the old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercials when someone drops their chocolate bar into someone else’s jar of peanut butter, something amazing is about to happen on Lower Thames. The Thames Street Kitchen crew is taking over…The Revolving Door Restaurant.

Revolving Door Restaurant Newport, RI

Here’s the written announcement:

The Revolving Door Restaurant is excited to announce a new spin on our current space. The concept behind Revolving Door has always been to promote an inspiring and exciting experience for our local community and our summer patrons and we will be continuing that tradition by opening our doors to create an opportunity for the crew behind Thames Street Kitchen (TSK). For the last few years they have been on the hunt for a space that fits their style and culinary aspirations and we are delighted that they’ve found that in the Revolving Door. The team is getting acclimated now in hopes of opening in the early Spring. We look forward to them bringing in a new energy, atmosphere and food scene right next door.

This is likely a perfect solution for all involved. The TSK crew has been looking for a high-end venue, while the Revolving Door Restaurant has been shifting away from its visiting chef concept over the last year or so. This is a match made in culinary heaven.

For those of you who don’t know the Revolving Door, it shares a building with Bouchard’s on at 509 Thames Street, next to O’Brien’s. Here’s a map.

[QUICK UPDATE: We now know who the head mixologist/general manager will be!]
