4 Olives Wine Bar is serious about good wine. Serving as both decoration and menu, the restaurant’s collection of over 800 bottles of wine are kept in a large glass cave in the centre of the dining room, creating an arresting, dramatic centrepiece. Each of these 800 wines, many available by the glass, is then matched to a specific item on the menu, creating perfect harmony between food and drink. Highlights from the menu include the bacon-wrapped Medjool dates stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese and the seared scallops with shiitake broth. For those who want a lighter meal or a more traditional wine accompaniment, the menu also offers an impressive array of cheeses and charcuterie which can be mixed and matched according to taste.

A true local gem, Public at the Brickyard puts great emphasis on a farm-to-table approach to its food, sourcing local produce and working closely with farmers and brewers to bring the highest quality ingredients and products to the menu. The result is a delicious dining experience which is representative of the region’s specialities and Kansan cuisine. Try the Wichita wings, marinated and fried in a special house BBQ sauce; or the prairie sliders made with bison meat, cheddar cheese, sweet onion marmalade and a mustard aioli. As an accompaniment, choose from one of the many unique microbrews on offer, including the River City Brewing Co. and the Hopping Gnome Brewery, both based in Wichita.
