“A True Hidden Gem.”


An Excerpt from the USA Today Review

Heirloom Kitchen in Old Bridge sprouted from a cooking school tucked in a strip mall into a bustling BYOB dining destination with James Beard semifinalist and “Top Chef” contender David Viana in the kitchen. The restaurant serves creative and colorful renditions of classic dishes with a four-course prix fixe menu and a vegan prix fixe menu. Each week, one dish comes off each menu, never to return, and is replaced with something new. But in the best of both worlds, this high-end fare is served in an approachable, airy space with an open kitchen, chef’s table, mismatched chairs, pops of greenery and a book nook packed with beloved cookbooks, making Heirloom Kitchen a true hidden gem that remains in the unassuming strip mall, even on the heels of astronomical success and two additional restaurants.

Guests can swing by for a cocktail before dinner, or spend an evening just at La Otra.

La Otra also offers cocktail classes created and taught by Ricardo.
