At The Lab Restaurant, located at 18 S.

Other menu items include fries, a short rib eggroll, sticky chicken fingers, fried cauliflower bites, mango fried rice, and more. The restaurant also serves items called Capsules which include a protein, starch, side, and a veggie. According to Anselme, some of their most popular items are the Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich, the Lab Burger (cheese, bacon, scallion aioli), and The Doctor (braised pull pork and smoked pineapple slaw on a toasted bun). During the pandemic, customers can use takeout or delivery with Door Dash, Grub Hub, and Uber Eats. “Business has been inconsistent but it is still going thanks to our customers,” said Anselme. “Kenilworth is a great town. I worked here before I opened up three years ago, so I knew how great it was.”
