The Sinclair Kitchen, the new 104-seat restaurant adjacent to the rock club that opened last month, has debuted in Harvard Square.
The restaurant, like the rock club, celebrates the personal journey of the American musician. The space, with a focus on authenticity, is populated with carefully selected vintage finds and reclaimed materials that reference transportation and classic Americana. Banquettes, inspired by railway benches, line the perimeter of both floors of the restaurant, while booths, carved out of the space, provide intimate dining moments. For art, a custom US Railway map of leather and charred blocks (by studioTYAK), a vintage train signal switch board, old railroad ties, and a Hatch Show Print poster, complement recent photographs taken by local artist, Mackenzie Holway and musician boyfriend, Joe Fletcher, while on a cross-country tour during construction. On the second floor, the open kitchen reinforces this authentic experience as food, music, and American life come together at The Sinclair.
