2. Downtown Kitchen

“We have one goal in mind when we open our doors at Downtown Kitchen every day-to do whatever it takes to create the best dining experience possible.”

This quote stated above came directly from the Downtown Kitchen website. Downtown Kitchen, or DK as they call themselves, strives to give each and every customer the best experience when they walk through their doors. Customer service is extremely important to the staff at DK.

Downtown Kitchen prides themselves in their featured special which changes everyday. Like RCB, Downtown Kitchen offers a variety of food choices on their “all-American” menu. They also are known for their specialty cocktails and wide variety of wine and beer.

The atmosphere at Downtown Kitchen is much different than RCB. The restaurant is located in downtown Canton near other shops and restaurants. Inside, the kitchen is open for guests to watch the chefs cook. The tables and booths are close together, but no one feels squished. DK feels much more refined than the country chic atmosphere of RCB.

The friendly staff is open to making your dining experience the best in any way they can. The chefs assist in this by going around to each table and checking on the progress of the meal.

Downtown Kitchen suggests recommendations. So if you’re in the mood for some casual talk and fantastic food, Downtown Kitchen is the place to be.
