Husband-and-wife owners Chef Nick Goellner and Wine Director Leslie Newsam Goellner serve small plates inspired by Mediterranean, East Asian and Midwestern cuisine. The wine list boasts international natural wines, including varietal pét-nats and grower Champagnes.
From The Sommelier: “In Kansas City, things have really started to change as far as overall wine lists are concerned. For so long, lists were generic big-name wines or lists comprised of placeholder wines. Lists are now starting to become more focused on not just what guests are familiar with, but wines with focus on [pairing with] the food menu.” —Leslie Newsam Goellner, The Antler Room
