This spot takes its inspiration from New York-style delis, which means the menu is rife with hefty sandwiches, as expected. So Guy was surprised to discover St. Louis-style spare ribs, which are The Kitchen's sleeper hit. The pork is soaked in a red wine vinegar brine studded with star anise, juniper berries and red pepper flakes, then hit with a smoked paprika rub. The ribs are grilled until beautifully caramelized and come drenched in an agrodolce sauce that adds both sweetness and spice.
