About The Kitchen

Nestled on the first floor of a beloved old house in Gilroy is First Street Kitchen & Cocktails.  A creation and long-time goal of Jennifer Sosa, this neighborhood restaurant is designed as a gathering place for friends, old and new, to enjoy classic Americana cuisine, craft cocktails, artisan beer and beautiful wines on tap.  All of our selections are made to order from scratch in our own kitchen.  Located at 383 1st Street in the heart of Gilroy and offering an inspired menu created with the assistance of Chef Ryan Shelton, who brings two Michelin-star level culinary experience. 

The Kitchen is a quick-service restaurant, but, it’s not like all the others.  It offers fine dining in a fun and casual setting. The cuisine is coined ‘Americana’… think American bistro with a comfy twist,  with dishes like the specialty sloppy joe sandwich and picnic chicken sandwich, crunchy parmesan salmon fish sticks and angry meatballs.

The walls display whimsical and rustic paintings by local artist Whitney Pintello.  There are beautiful hand crafted bar table and benches custom built by Terra Amica in San Martin

We love food, we love people, and we love music.  Come on in to The Kitchen, bring your friends and family.  First Street Kitchen & Cocktails is your neighbor joint!
