Foodie Favorites
**Host Favorite** Upper Midwest-inspired food for weekday lunch, weekend brunch, and dinner with and a bottle shop for wine, spirits and craft beer. Rotating menu with locally sourced dishes feature small tastes, shareable plates and entrees. For brunch I like to pair a house made sangria or mimosa with a sweet or savory crepe. Indulge in dessert after dinner and take home a bottle or two from their shop. To view their hours & current menu, visit their website at www.storyhillbkc.com.
