Cuisine Description

The modern Midwest menu consistently changes with the most seasonal ingredients available, as does the wine pairing that is available to accompany every dish.

Wine List Description
We look for small producers and wines with a great narrative. We feature two Missouri wines and look for “what grows together, pairs together” symmetries.

Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"Definitely the amuse starter of our “egg” dish, a maple custard with roasted shitake mushrooms and bonita caviar served in an egg shell."

Perfect Pairing
Egg dish with Scarpetta sparkling rosé. Both offer a nice balance of sweet and savory. The blend’s Pinot Nero contributes ripe fruit, while the Franconia adds a savory herbaceous quality.

Wine Events
We offer a 10-course chef’s tasting (vegetarian option) as well as a prix fixe menu with optional wine pairings for each course. All wines are poured tableside and explained to all guests.
