Story Braised Beef Short Ribs

Braised beef short ribs with gnocchi, green beans and bacon, topped with an onion ring.

Chef Carl Thorne-Thomsen is cooking up a storm in the kitchen of his Prairie Village restaurant, Story. Each day of the week for dinner only, he's preparing a selection of customer favorites that can be ordered online through Story's website with no-contact curbside pickup.

Start your meal with Thorne-Thomsen's famous duck empanadas or a beet, green or Caesar salad, then a second course of lobster tagliatelle or braised pork ravioli. Finish your meal with beef short ribs or steak frites with a side of spring asparagus or grilled vegetables.

Of course, you can always order any items from Story's menu a la carte. If you're just in the mood for dessert, choose from delicate donut holes with vanilla pastry cream, salted caramel and passionfruit; a slice of lemon layer cake; chocolate torte or housemade ice cream or sorbet.

Story is also offering a few more casual items like chips and guacamole or braised chicken tacos that are great options to feed a hungry family, as well as a few daily specials. Tuesday is taco night, Wednesday features a Campo Lindo Farms Fried Chicken special and Thursday is burger night. The restaurant is also now serving one of its most popular seasonal specials: soft-shell crabs.

Additional items available online include loaves of Thorne-Thomsen's housemade bread, in addition to a selection of fine wine to-go. Pick up salad dressings, sauces, bags of The Roasterie coffee and gift cards, too. Gratuity can also be added to your order and paid for online to support the restaurant during this time.

For the best selection of items, place your order by 2pm and at checkout, you will be able to select the day and time for pickup between 4 and 8pm. The pickup location is at Story’s kitchen door; if you require delivery, call the restaurant.
