When Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen shuttered in May, owners hinted that a new concept would be revealed come fall. Now, Kent Rathbun has announced what will replace the former restaurant.

The Kitchen at 6130, a private event space with on-site catering, will inhabit the eatery’s Preston Center digs.

Owners hope to house everything from cocktail parties and intimate celebrations to receptions for more than 100 people. Rathbun says that the space will also serve as the new home for Kent Rathbun Catering.

“With such a gorgeous space in our arsenal, we’re excited to breathe new life into this venue,” he says.
