Eat Local KC: Rye

I had a good feeling I would like Rye when I saw it was owned by the husband-wife chef team of bluestem. Bonus points for a great location (Mission Farms), a great view and growing some of their own veggies right outside their restaurant (!!). The local foodie in me has been so excited to try it out and we decided brunch on our anniversary would be the perfect opportunity.

I adore the country chic décor with barn doors, cool light fixtures, blue checkered napkins and wood everywhere.


I’d describe their menu as farm-to-table comfort classics with an upscale twist.

I immediately had dish envy when I tried my husband’s burnt end hash.

I never order anything with the word spicy in it, but this wasn’t too spicy at all, had tons of flavor and was very filling. But I didn’t stay disappointed for long, because my dish was delicious too.

I went in a more classic direction with the Rye breakfast which included eggs, soft cornbread muffins, thick bacon, sausage and homemade cottage fries with a to-die-for ham gravy.

Even the hot chocolate was decadent.

Rye didn’t disappoint. The food was great and knowing they source from local farmers and some of the herbs and veggies came from right outside was just the icing on the cake.

They serve lunch and dinner as well as brunch on the weekends and a take-out menu. This view is available with all meals though.

      I don’t know unfortunately. I asked the husband and he hadn’t remembered there being micro greens on the dish until he saw the picture. It doesn’t look like they grow any micro greens in their own garden, but they do source from Citty Bitty Farm so I’m guessing whatever they are came from there.
