The Restaurant at 1900 opened in Mission Woods, Kansas, in April with a brand-new restaurant, bar and private dining room. The sleek space is located inside the 1900 Building, a renovated 1967 Modernist architectural gem that now includes multiple performance and event spaces, gallery space and offices.
The dream team pulled together by Steven Karbank, chairman of Karbank Real Estate Co., to run the restaurant includes executive chef Linda Duerr, general manager Keith Goldman and beverage director Doug Frost. Duerr’s modern American menu features light, seasonal dishes and ideal portions. Seafood dishes like the Narragansett Bay lobster salad roll and tempura soft-shell crabs in adobo-butter broth are summer must-trys. The selection of handmade pastas prove that pasta doesn’t have to be heavy, like the casarecce with farm-greens pesto.
Pastry chef Elizabeth Paradise also shows off the seasons with desserts including a lemon chiffon layer cake, a sorbet trio and a chocolate-caramel tart. If you prefer to end your meal on a lighter note, ask your bartender for a seasonal strawberry egg cream, and sip it like you’re sitting at a soda fountain.
