Dining notes

Kith & Kin, which took over the former Paragon Dundee space, is open.

Omaha restaurateurs Ron Samuelson and Greg Cutchall have taken over the space and are serving a Southern-focused menu.

Samuelson, of Della Costa and Herbe Sainte, and Cutchall, of Jams and many other Omaha spots, plan to reopen the space as Kith & Kin the week after Thanksgiving.

Samuelson’s SamFam restaurant group, which he runs with his nephews Justin and Aaron Halbert, will develop the new menu. They’ll bring chef Jeff Owen, who has worked at Della Costa and Herbe Sainte, to Kith & Kin. Alicia Rowe, who managed Paragon Dundee, will remain in place at the new restaurant.

In the South, “kith and kin” means “friends and family.”

The restaurant will be open daily starting next week for lunch and dinner, along with weekend brunch.

Cutchall owns and operates 48 restaurants in five states, including local locations of Jams and First Watch, among others. Samuelson started SamFam in 2016. He is a former partner in M’s Pub.

Kith & Kin is at 5018 Underwood Ave. A website and Facebook page will come soon.
