Lawrence, KS Edition: Merchants Pub and Plate

Merchants claims "Midwestern Hospitality," so I was curious to see how that fared.


Merchants is owned and operated by locals Chef TK and Emily Peterson, and they invite guests to come as they are. This isn't a dress code, it's our philosophy for all we do. We are here to take care. For us, it starts with the menu – we work with our neighbors to bring the best of what's available locally to the table, showcase the specialties of our region and host guests for a great meal.
Our menu is full of familiar dishes, reimagined through our lens of seasonal + local + flexible + fun. The bar program is anchored by 30 craft beers on draft, offered up along side hand-crafted cocktails and approachable wine. Come join us!
The menu was a limited one because they had Valentine's Day specials. But there were a few dishes on there that really caught out eye.

MerchantsOne of the best sellers is their brussels sprouts - with dried apricots, garlic chili mustard and cashews.

MerchantsI got a trio of wine samples - for just $15, when one of them would be $15 a glass on its own. Mine included "Teutonic Jazz Odyssey Field Blend" which is a gurwurtztraminer & riesling with caramelized green apple and refreshing acid flavors.

MerchantsMy second was the Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco - spumante. extra dry, aromas of candied fruits, sweet flowers, lively & delicate.

MerchantsAnd my third was Neverland Cabernet - a true California cab, layered with notes of black currant, blueberry, and smoked cedar planks.

MerchantsHow cute!

MerchantsFor my main dish, I went with a "short rib gnocchi." Gaaah.
housemade ricotta gnocchi, braised beef short rib, root vegetable chips, light horseradish
