KTT is the latest from chef-about-town Tony Maws and his most casual offering yet. The space feels like a neighborhood hangout, with mis-matched chairs, chalkboard specials and vintage ephemera on the wall, perhaps belying the quality of the food served there. The dishes are much more straightforward than his almost overwrought menu at Craigie on Main; there’s a house-made kielbasa platter with kraut and fries ($16), a hearty vegetable and barley stew ($16) and, of course, a grass-fed cheeseburger with kimchee Russian dressing and emmentaler ($16). Burgers are Maws’ signature, and while KTT’s isn’t the same as the bar menu legend at Craigie, it is a worthy sibling.
