Scratch Kitchen245 Derby Street Salem, MA

A quality-driven restaurant with a focus on regional and local farm fresh ingredients: 


“We at Scratch kitchen believe in the ‘No Can all by Hand’ cooking style. Simply put,we make the majority of our menu item in house by hand, from the bacon, pickles, ketchup, breads and more. It might be more work and take longer to produce but we think the end product is a tastier menu item.Secondly, we know what’s in our food – we don’t have to worry about preservatives and artificial flavorings in our product. We try to keep our sourcing as close to home as possible, utilizing local farms, regional cheeses and meats, even our sodas and beers come from small hand-crafted and or family sources.” – Chef William Fogarty, Scratch Kitchen, Salem MA

Roasted eggplant soup topped with sesame seeds, a heavenly taste.
