Pierpont's at Union Station

30 West Pershing Road
Kansas City, Missouri

Everything's up to date in Kansas City, and this elegant steakhouse and seafood restaurant in the city's renovated Union Station is a "prime" example. The building's 25-foot ceilings and neoclassical Golden-Age-of-Railroads design give Pierpont's a grandeur befitting its namesake, railroad mogul J. Pierpont Morgan. The Anderson Restaurant Group, Pierpont's  parent company, gives wine pride-of-place, with 11 display cellars throughout the labyrinth of public and private dining rooms. Manager/sommelier Charles Peach discounts wine throughout the month, and he's organizing a Connoisseur's Club. Executive Chef Patrick Williams enlivens the classic steakhouse menu with innovative sauces and embellishments. Try his Filet Pierpont topped with a Maytag blue cheese-cream cheese blend, drizzled with a chocolate and aged balsamic sauce, paired with a 2004 or 2005 Sterling Vineyards Three Palm Merlot.

Wine list highlights: The list is designed to complement the steakhouse menu, but because said menu is oriented to sauces, that's a broader category than it might seem. In other words, lots of reds from all over the world, fitting every flavor profile. Many small production bottlings. All price points and profiles. Names like Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco, Novy Judge Family Grenache, K Vintners The Boy Syrah-Grenache Blend, Penfolds Grange, Opus One, Joseph Phelps Insignia and others.
