The Kitchen Offers Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese American Fare in Florissant

In Florissant, a longstanding family-owned eatery recently enjoyed a new lease on life, when The Kitchen debuted in November, filling part of the space previously occupied by Chinese Gourmet Restaurant.

Co-owners/siblings Mary Nguyen and Kristin Liu grew up in the culinary industry, following in the footsteps of their Vietnamese émigré parents, who owned and operated Chinese Gourmet Restaurant for 33 years.
