Kings County Imperial, Featuring Classic Central Chinese Cuisine, Opens in Brooklyn


The restaurant is open for dinner beginning at 6 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Josh Grinker and Tracy Jane Young, the team behind Stone Park Café in Park Slope, Brooklyn, have opened Kings County Imperial, a market-driven restaurant featuring the cuisine of Central China.

Grinker and Young, who have traveled extensively through China, will source a number of ingredients from the restaurant’s own on-site garden of heirloom Chinese vegetables.

The menu, which will be served family-style, features items like the market salt and pepper dry fry that rotates daily between shrimp, squid, beef rib, blowfish tails, and tofu; Cantonese crispy garlic chicken; clay pot noodles; and prawn fries with Chinese ketchup.

In partnership with Kings County Soy Works, the restaurant will serve their small-batch, handcrafted soy sauce, barrel-aged and sun-fermented in Southern China, both on tap for the kitchen, and to guests as a table condiment.


Kings County Imperial is open for dinner on a first-come, first-served basis from Sunday through Thursday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., and on Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
