Often recognized as one of the top food trends in recent years, the farm-to-table concept can now be found in restaurants around the country. By promoting and building relationships with local purveyors, restaurants are able to know exactly where their food is grown and how it is sourced. Kansas City is fortunate to have an array of restaurants that embrace this farm-to-table ideal.
In fact, here are a few worth trying in the area.
With a rustic name and a farm-oriented passion, The Farmhouse has established itself as one of the top farm-to-table eateries in the area. They are self-described as “farm-to-table, tip-to-tail!” This cozy spot in the River Market area celebrates its close relationships with local growers and suppliers.
A homey decor mixed with industrial-style accents creates a welcoming setting for guests. Fans enjoy their homestyle items such as the Chicken Pot Pie, Osso Buco, and Lamb Bourguignon.
The Westside Local
Tucked away in the Westside North area of Kansas City, The Westside Local embraces the ideology of farm-to-table cooking. Long-standing relationships with area farms and businesses have helped The Westside Local create an innovative and ingredient-driven menu.
With a focus on seasonal fare, this quaint restaurant delivers house favorites such as Roasted Poblano and Spinach Dip, a Cowboy Ranch Burger and Sausage and Mushroom Penne.
Making its home on the famed “Restaurant Row” of 39th Street, Room 39 has been in business since 2004. Showcasing the freshest seasonal ingredients in the area, this casual spot creates innovative cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Now, the menu changes often according to what is available from local suppliers. Their favorites include Thai Chicken Meatballs, Goat Cheese Gnocchi, and Smoked Duck Breast.
