KCMO- The Farmhouse
Who's eaten here? They just opened this week, but I'm anxious for news.
I tried to go for lunch on Saturday just so I could respond to your post, but, unfortunately, I think they are closed. Closed all day Saturday doesn't seem like a good idea for a restaurant but the hours are listed at the bottom of their page and, just to double check, I called twice. http://www.eatatthefarmhouse.com/?pag...
I look forward to getting down there, perhaps Tuesday.
We went there for lunch today and spoke with one of the owners. Currently they are serving lunch only, M-F; there will be dinner and weekend brunch once they have a liquor license, sometime this month. Definitely by August.
I like the food: fresh, well-seasoned and thoughtful. I had a salad with lardons and egg. My only complaint is that the eggs were boiled: it would be considerably better with a fried egg, although that might be a harder "sell" in KC. The potato-leek soup is lovely and the generous cup serving surprising. I may be having this for lunch next time I go.
I'm dying to try the "chicken fried duck"... unfortunately my husband had the chicken salad, so I couldn't steal a bite. He liked his sandwich, though.
We'll definitely go back.
I finally ate lunch there and I'm happy to report the pulled pork sliders had an Asian twist to them w/the Thai basil and cucumber relish. The homemade ketchup was good, but the fryer's oil needed to be cranked. The fries were rather soggy. I liked my blueberry pie and the gazpacho was just ok. The patio is pretty nice w/all the tree shade. Now, if they could just keep all the bad mojo from the previous tenants at bay...
