1201 Kitchen, independently owned and operated, is located in the hub of downtown Erie and the heart of Erie’s dining landscape. Featuring a Latin/Asian-inspired menu that is refreshed every five to six weeks, derived from the seasons, gives guests a reason to visit often. 1201 Kitchen’s cuisine embodies the hottest trends in food today… yet upholds time-honored traditions that set the standard in casual dining. They feature sushi, steak and seafood and constantly spin a creative twist on these favorites. You will find something familiar and something different in every dish.
A true experience – the downtown location features a stylish exposed brick exterior and a unique jewel-toned inside décor – all embellished with original art by local artisans. The ambiance is an experience like no other – the main attraction being a rich-marble-topped bar that extends the length of the restaurant – the perfect space to meet friends after work, or to indulge in a glass of wine for happy hour or before one of Erie’s diverse cultural events. Or, relax in the upper loft overlooking the entire space. For a unique experience ask to be seated in the kitchen where you can watch the chefs at work.
