From contemporary American cuisine and hearty BBQ meats to gourmet burgers and fine French fare – Topeka, Kansas, has a dining scene with something for everyone. In The Culture Trip’s updated guide to Eating Out in Topeka, we have lined up ten of the latest and best restaurants Topeka has to offer.

RowHouse Restaurant

The RowHouse Restaurant is a venture from Topeka native and chef Greg Fox who honed his culinary skills working in kitchens in Nashville and New York City before returning to his hometown. Established in 2007, the restaurant is located in downtown Topeka in a charming historic row house dating back to 1876, and features two floors of dining space and a picturesque outdoor courtyard. Serving eclectic contemporary American cuisine with local Kansas flavours, the RowHouse’s menu changes on a weekly basis, though guests can expect dishes like beef tenderloin with balsamic soaked plums and cauliflower puree and the seared mahi mahi with lemon and basil beurre blanc, succotash of sweetcorn, lima beans and potato.
