History

The restaurant was designed by Alex Morales. Their goal was to bring together the visual and culinary arts to create an energetic place for unique happenings. Inspiration for the restaurant came from the New York City art scene of the 1980s as well as the Wynwood Walls in Miami. The chef that runs the kitchen, Chris Curren, sources foods from nearby markets and farms, offering meals both sophisticated and fresh. This is then complemented by the artistic works. Altogether, these elements facilitate a space where the intention is to bring people together and let them create memories filled with joy.

    A perfect space to celebrate with friends and family

    If you're looking for a unique space to celebrate an event, with incredible food to boot, you can't go wrong with Fulton Market Kitchen. They have so many different rooms as well as some great artwork that really makes the space come alive. I've had dinner in a few of the rooms, as well as a wedding that took over the entire space. Every time, the chefs and the attentive staff knocked it out of the park.

    Exactly what we were looking for!

    Fulton Market Kitchen (FMK) helped to make our big day a great event - not just for us, but for our families as well. During and after the event, we heard multiple compliments from our family about the impressive food, the unique drinks, the impeccable service, and the attention to detail. We especially appreciated the event coordinator, Lale, for thinking about the things we had forgotten, like how to hand off a bride (none of us actually knew how that would go, but we got through it!).

    FMK was a great space and provided exactly what we were looking for in a venue. It was intimate while still having enough room to roam, the ambiance was lively without being too overbearing. The candelabras, music level, and seating fit our group perfectly. Not to mention, we always look forward to going back throughout the week for dinner. We couldn't recommend them more!

    Amazing Day

    We had our wedding booked with Fulton Market Kitchen in the fall of 2017 with a 2018 date. The venue did go through a transition period of staff turnover which in the beginning felt very stressful. Communication between the new planner Lale was impeccable and her knowledge of the wedding industry and running a successful wedding was so comforting and genuine. Our day went off without a hitch and we could not be happier. If you are the out of the box couple looking for a cool hip place then this is it. They truly are full service.
