New Gastropub In Rancho Cucamonga
After a long awaited arrival, The State Kitchen has finally opened at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, and I had the honor of tasting the menu early during their invite-only soft opening today. Located at 7900 Kew Ave, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739, The State Kitchen is definitely one of the hottest new restaurants in the Inland Empire.
Kitchen, Beer, Whiskey
The Rancho Cucamonga location is an encore of its namesake on State Street in Downtown Redlands. The new venue has a kitchen that is double the size of the Redlands kitchen. They’ve also added a brick oven, which will allow them to expand their current menu – which includes gourmet pizzas. The State Kitchen, Rancho Cucamonga will also have a larger selection of whiskey and spirits to live up to their infamous hashtag, #kitchenbeerwhiskey.
Everything that I tasted was amazing. I ordered the Drunken Pig with Onion Rings (featured below). The brioche bun was soft, the hamburger itself was tender, and the onion rings were cooked to perfection. I also tasted the Bruschetta as an appetizer and it was the best I’ve ever had. We polished off the meal with a Butterscotch Pot De Creme, which was topped with fresh whipped cream and crunchy sea salt. It was the perfect balance of salty and sweet.
