Kingfisher is continuing its culinary “road trip” featuring food from “Back East” alongside their regular menu August 10 – 23.

Previous summer 2016 road trip destinations include Midwest and Southwest. Looking back over the years, previous destinations have covered much of the United States most well known, as well as obscure dining destinations.

Chef Jeff Azersky prepared the special menu featuring Maine lobster, soft-shell crab, and pot pies.

Kingfisher opened in 1993 by Chefs Jim Murphy, Jeff Azersky, and partner Tim Ivankovich.
