Some Quick Notes Regarding Our Hours & Service

Dear valued customers and friends,

Please understand that we at 50Kitchen love Dorchester and we love Boston! We also ask that you understand that we are still very much in the midst of a global pandemic. We reserve the right to refuse service to any individual who is not following the current Massachusetts mask mandate for indoor dining.

All of your favorite restaurants are dealing with:

  • Price increases for ingredients,
  • Shortages in ingredients
  • Staffing issues

We appreciate your business & support, but most importantly we appreciate it your patience and understanding. A lot of these issues don’t give restaurant owners a lot of notice, so there are days where some of your favorite menu items will be sold out or days where we need to adjust our hours on the fly. Please continue to be positive, everyone working at 50Kitchen and at every restaurant you go to is a person.

50Kitchen is a fusion style restaurant located in Fields Corner in Dorchester. It’s a place that represents second chances, the power of community and cultural diversity through the food and the people that we serve.

Our menu focuses on traditional southern cuisine staples like our wings or our Chicken & Waffles, Gumbo, and Shrimp & Grits, as well as fusion experiments like our Jambalaya Egg Rolls. But, no matter what you get as an entree, you have to try our Honey Fried Cornbread.

Meet Owner & Chef Anthony Caldwell

Owner and head chef Anthony Caldwell knows a thing or two about how food can change lives. Opening his first restaurant after years of cooking in some of Boston’s most prestigious universities & hotels, Chef Caldwell has always dreamed of bringing his vision to life.

Inspired by the rich, diverse, cultural community of Dorchester, 50Kitchen’s menu pays homage to both American Southern and Asian cuisine. From Jambalaya Egg Rolls to smoked BBQ brisket on our Banh Mi sandwich, you are in for a treat when you visit 50Kitchen.
