Named for a small French village near the Italian border, Menton, is the most recent addition to the BL Gruppo Restaurant Group, which already includes No. 9 Park, The Butcher Shop, B&G Oysters, Sportello and Drink. Menton blends French technique and Italian soul on two different menus - a four-course prix-fixe and seven-course chef's tasting, both of which are available nightly.

From its Fort Point perch amid the historic brick buildings and sleek new construction, Menton creates a welcoming, comfortable ambience in which guests can relax and enjoy themselves. With beautifully executed cuisine, an unparalleled wine program, gracious hospitality and a glamorous setting, the restaurant excites, inspires, and transports guests for a memorable evening.

Kristen Kish

Chef at Menton

Chef Kristen Kish at Menton

Born in South Korea and adopted into a family in Kentwood, MI, Kristen Kish showed an affinity for cooking at a young age. At six years old, she became an avid fan of the cooking show Great Chefs of the World on the Discovery channel, feeling connected to the chefs and inspired by the passion they showed for cooking.

After high school, she originally attended college with the intent of studying International Business but soon realized that the subject matter was not reflective of her true passions. At her mother’s suggestion, she applied to Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago and, after graduating in 2006, has never looked back.

Before joining the Stir team in 2011, Kish worked in numerous restaurants including Michelin-star chef Guy Martin’s Sensing in Boston. Working under Guy Martin and then Barbara Lynch, she found two incredible mentors who have both inspired her in countless ways. The high energy, fast-paced and creative environment of the professional kitchen, as well as the camaraderie among those within the industry, has proven to be endlessly fulfilling and motivating.

In Fall 2012, Kish was promoted to Chef de Cuisine of Stir, Barbara Lynch’s South End cooking studio and classroom, where she oversaw all back of house operations, including the design and execution of nightly menus and demonstration dinners for 10 guests.

In 2012/2013 she competed on Bravo’s Top Chef Season 10: Seattle where she won the coveted title of Top Chef, becoming the second female chef to win the prestigious competition. In June 2013, Kish became the chef de cuisine of Menton, Chef Barbara Lynch’s fine dining restaurant in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood and the city’s only Relais & Chateaux property. In this role she is responsible for all back of house operations for Menton and works closely with Chef Barbara Lynch.
