Comfort and clutter are the rule at KitchenBar, where a seasonal menu of American stick-to-the-ribs grub is at home in a place with an artsy living-room aesthetic. Owner Christine Iu gutted the broken-down bodega that formerly occupied the space but left the building’s original wood beams exposed, then threw in some found objects from local construction sites for decoration, like an old wood wagon wheel attached to a metal chandelier. Colorful murals and a rotating selection of art round out the interior, drawing youngish Park Slope and Windsor Terrace professionals for cozy dinners and glasses of wine from South Africa and India. Most of KitchenBar’s menu of comfort food shares a similar scavenged, playful sensibility: a steaming bowl of macaroni and cheese is powdered with a Ritz cracker gratin, a root-beer glaze lends a sticky sweetness to a mile-high stack of baby-back ribs, and a pile of onion rings is fried with a beer batter, then paired with an earthy horseradish dip. The “small plates” header on the first section of the menu is misleading, as portions are large.
