Farm to table dining at its finest.

The Farmhouse Restaurant is located by the River Market Area and tastes like it should be located at the farm (hence the name farmhouse).

The Farmhouse concept is “farm to table” which literally means most everything comes straight from the local farms and right to your table. This is becoming one of my favorite dining concepts.

The Farmhouse uses fresh seasonal local produce, meats and cheeses from local farms around the Kansas City area. There is a board that hangs in the restaurant that lists all the local farms they use and what products they get from them. Everything is prepared in a gourmet fashion and with it being seasonal there is always something different. The restaurant even has a garden in the yard there. I tell you it cannot get any fresher than that.

We were meeting some friends there for lunch and for starters we had the most delightful cheese tray with local cheeses from Green Dirt Farms and house made crackers. I had a luscious pear martini that paired nicely with it. I also got a wonderful French onion soup. I always like trying something new and saw chickpea fritters on the menu. I love hummus and chickpeas in soups and stews so I thought it would be a fun to try. I am glad I did, they were really good. My husband chose the BLT and it had this big thick slice of local bacon served up with all the fresh fixings on homemade bread farm French bread.

I got the chance to visit with the chef of the Farmhouse, Michael Foust. He is a magnificently talented chef and has been professionally cooking for over 20 years. He was getting ready to head to the local fish market to hand select the fish for that evening. He is very particular that everything served in the restaurant is fresh and full of flavor. Michael is one of the best chefs in Kansas City and has been featured in local “Iron Chef” type competitions at The Healthy Food Good Wine event and the Taste of KC.

So I mentioned earlier we were meeting some friends there for lunch. It happened to be my friend Shannon Hood, she writes for frothy girlZ. It is a fun website that features movies reviews and all sorts of pop culture information. Make sure and check it out.

I suggest scheduling a date and go to dinner and a movie with your significant other. You can get reviews on all the lastest movies at frothy girlZ so you can pick the perfect movie for you and have a wonderful meal at The Farmhouse.
