Rye restaurant in Leawood, Kansas, just south of Kansas City, celebrates the Midwestern foods that chefs Megan and Colby Garrelts grew up eating. Both of these chefs are proud to be from the Midwest and Rye gives them the opportunity to showcase dishes that they have enjoyed with several generations of their families. They pay homage to those heritage dishes that the Midwest is known for – succulent smoked pork chops, aged steaks, fried chicken, vegetables just off the stove, Parker House rolls, freshly-made seasonal pies, fruit cobblers, and specialty cakes to name a few. Their food at Rye takes traditional dishes and gives them a chef’s point of view, while preserving the important heritage of the dish. Chefs Megan and Colby use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and products including produce from their family farm, Flat Rock Field in Parker, Kansas. The beverages served at Rye also have a local focus with a selection of spirits and beers from Missouri and Kansas. There is an assortment of classic cocktails as well as regionally-inspired beverages such as The State Fair. Rye is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with brunch served on Saturday and Sunday.
