Sir's Kitchen is closing its doors after almost a year of bringing soul food to the east side
The odd and long hours of the job mean the bonds that tie a restaurant kitchen together are like those of a family. Des Moines Register
A soul food restaurant on the east side of Des Moines is closing its doors.
Sir's Kitchen, located at 2905 N.E. Hubbell Ave., will have its last day of service on Saturday. The restaurant will be open from noon to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Sir's serves a variety of American classics including soul food, seafood, comfort dishes and breakfast platters. The menu also features burgers, chicken and waffles, fried chicken and fish, and pasta dishes.
"Hello everyone!" Sir's Kitchen wrote on its Facebook page. "On behalf of Sir’s Kitchen we would like to inform you all this will be our final weekend open! We truly would like to thank you all for the continued love and support you have shown and gave us! We are truly grateful!"
Sirwilliam Bekish, a Des Moines native, opened the restaurant in September 2018 after catering from his own kitchen for six years.
Bekish's signature waffles are made with Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Fruity Pebbles breakfast cereals, served with what Bekish calls "rippin' chicken." Seasoned, battered and deep-fried, the chicken breast is cut into strips so it's easy to pull apart.
"We decided to take another approach with Sir’s Kitchen but that will come later!" the Facebook post said.
