The Order Seasonal Gnocchi

The seasonal gnocchi is served with seasonal vegetables, whipped ricotta and fried sage. 

When you head to The Order inside Springfield's Hotel Vandivort, you are practically guaranteed a good meal. Not only is the menu seasonal, but the restaurant works with a list of local producers in order to use the freshest pork, goat cheese, mushrooms, chocolates, vegetables and more. If you're looking for a comforting dish at the end of a long week, we recommend the housemade gnocchi.

The Order's gnocchi is served with a brown butter sauce and roasted vegetables and topped off with whipped ricotta, fried sage and Aleppo pepper. This dish is vegetarian, but even meat-lovers will be impressed with the fall flavors and creaminess that the ricotta lends to the plate. 

For those who prefer something with more protein, the filet and herb-roasted chicken are also popular choices at the restaurant. Both dishes still incorporate local, seasonal ingredients, so you are guaranteed to get a little bit of Missouri autumn on your plate. And make sure to pick up a to-go cocktail, too; the smoked Old Fashioned is a classic, but the Dear Jessica, made with vodka, Irish cream, espresso, pumpkin spice syrup and cream, takes like fall in a cup. 

The Order is offering its menu for carryout and in-room service in the hotel.
