Molston on sign

Miles Kennedy Moston stands on the sign of the restaurant that his father Ian Moston has named after his son’s middle name.

Community Vibe

Kennedy's Craft Kitchen & Cocktails at 5506 E. Britton Drive in the Los Altos area has completed its signage but hasn't announced an opening date yet.

Restaurateur Ian Moston said, “I grew up a quarter mile away. I skateboarded in the mall. Kennedy’s will definitely have a community vibe.”

With 27 TVs, a parklet, and a menu with items made from scratch, Moston credits Chef Ryan McIntyre and Veronica Stout for much of the creativity that has gone into this new venture.

Moston said with COVID-19, he has been “holding back” from opening too soon and the team has been putting their energy into research and developing the menu. He added there are still a few details and sign-offs required before they can open.

Dive Bar

Alex’s Bar, at 2813 E. Anaheim St, celebrated a soft re-opening last weekend. The popular bar has a large outdoor tent area with a 100-person capacity.
