It’s that wonderful time of year where our palate gets to travel, but our body gets to stay inside the cozy enthralls of the Kingfisher restaurant. Get ready to experience cuisines from regions such as the Pacific Northwest, Great Plains/ Midwest, East coast, California/Hawaii, and down South.

Kingfisher will kick off its Summer Road Trip Series this week with signatures dishes and drinks from the Southwest. Executive Chef Harris has created a menu that’ll feature a complete range of regional appetizers, entrees, desserts, cocktails and beverages.
