New Martha Washington-inspired Restaurant Now Open in New Kent

A new restaurant inspired by America’s first First Lady, Martha Washington, is now open for business in New Kent.

Martha’s Kitchen opened in June at 11861 New Kent Highway near the county’s courthouse. Martha Washington was born in New Kent County.

“This was her hometown, where she was raised, so we wanted to honor her,” said Jordan Acton, director of marketing and social media coordinator for Martha’s Kitchen. “She had many recipes in her cookbook, including desserts and comfort food. The theme of the restaurant is inspired by her.”

Martha’s Kitchen specializes in Southern comfort food including fried chicken, fried catfish, fried pork chops, and meatloaf. Popular Chef’s Plate entrees include shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, veggie spaghetti, and pot roast. The restaurant also serves soups, salads, and sandwiches.

“Business is going well so far,” Acton said. “Everyone loves the food, the service, and the overall vibe. In the words of Martha Washington, we are determined to be a place that is cheerful and happy. That is our motto.”
