Theory Kitchen is an international pop-up restaurant and culinary events company run by Theo Friedman. We focus on creating the highest quality food and beverage experience in a relax and approachable manner. Blending aspects of art, music, design and culture into our food experiences, we specialize in culinary event production for any need. 


Theory Kitchen is a culinary brand founded by Theo Friedman. In attempts to reintroduce stories, emotions and personal experiences into the industrial food system, Theo started hosting pop-up dinners in 2010. Beginning with the first dinner, Theory Kitchen has aimed to cultivate a space where the intersection of art, culture, music, craftsmanship and food can be shared in an intimate environment. Since transitioning to operating Theory Kitchen full time, Theo Friedman has been featured on many media outlets such as The Boston Globe and Yahoo Food, Munchies and many more.
