Scratch Kitchen and Lounge - Forest Park

Scratch Kitchen & Lounge is an urban, funky burger/sandwich joint with killer mac n cheese. We opened in January 2012 on Madison St in Forest Park and have grown tremendously since then. As our name implies, everything is made from scratch, in-house, with no exceptions.

We offer live music on the weekends and a great brunch every Saturday and Sunday. We also regularly have Bingo and Trivia nights. At Scratch Kitchen & Lounge we like low lights and loud music.
