After being open for about three weeks, 2 Sons Kitchen & Market is going to start opening for dinner Thursdays through Saturdays. 

Owner Nathan Flynt said business has been strong at the new eatery.

“We are trying to figure out how the community wants to use us,” he said. 

For now, dinner will be similar to lunch, but with specials more suited for dinner, he also said. 

2 Sons had previously been open only for lunch and breakfast from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Starting today, they are adding dinner service Thursday through Saturday. Those days, the eatery will be open all day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., with dinner service officially starting at 5 p.m. The restaurant is closed Sundays.

In addition to people who knew Flynt from his food truck, Famous Nater’s, new customers are coming to the restaurant, he said. 

“We are very lucky to have the following from the truck that knew about it and has been following the progress for a long time,” he also said. 

The restaurant has about 20 employees.

Flynt said he loves the Martin Luther King Boulevard area, which is in a phase of growth.

“That is something we really are excited about and proud of-that we get to be a part of this neighborhood,” he said. “That’s a special thing. This neighborhood has so much history and diversity … This is the right fit for us.”
