Set in Kansas City’s historic City Market, Brown and Loe Restaurant’s inviting atmosphere is a blend of “big city” bistro with the welcoming casual flavor of a neighborhood favorite. Housed in a former Merchant’s Bank constructed in 1920, the restaurant honors the architectural details of the two-story building which features a façade of plate glass and verde marble floors and walls.
In the 1940’s, Brown and Loe was originally a produce broker with offices on the second floor of the Merchant’s Bank building. The new Brown and Loe Restaurant celebrates the techniques of curing, pickling and smoking meats, beautifully interpreted into marvelous American comfort cuisine. This is a true local venue, evidenced by the restaurant’s allegiance to the resident farmers and food artisans who supply most of the restaurant’s fresh ingredients.
Brown and Loe Restaurant is the second dining concept introduced by Harry Murphy, owner of the City Market’s popular Harry’s Country Club.

    Brunch at Brown and Loes last weekend. Everything was fresh and tasty with creative options. I might have wanted another sweet option but I had several choices on the savory side that sounded yummy. Very attentive server - we never ran out of coffee and water which is appreciated.

    Server was awesome. My friend and I mentioned we were going to split two meals and she had the kitchen plate each meal separately, which was very thoughtful. The cocktails were good, one meal was delish and the desserts were solid. The tenderloin sandwich was a disappointment. It was greasy without much flavor. The space was eclectic and fun, but very hot and very noisy.

    It was a nice day to sit on the patio in the shade. We had a table ready when we arrived. The hostess was very cheery, sweet and helpful. Our server, Jameson, was amazing and very attentive. He brought our drinks and food promptly and with little fuss. We love coming to this place and will certainly be back again.

    Delicious meal. Delicious coffee. Restaurant was way to warm though. All of us were sweating while eating dinner, therefore we didnt order dessert. Tasha, our server was wonderful! This is quite a loud space so prepare for not a quiet dinner. All in all, I would recommend definitely. Just would have been so much more enjoyable if the temp inside was cooler.

    I really love the building, location, and concept. The dining area was really warm, but it was toasty outside so hey maybe that was unavoidable. Unfortunately the dining experience wasn't good. Our appetizer wasn't consistent for the table. One order of calamari was very salty, the other barely seasoned. Both orders, along with a Nashville hot sandwich, were cooked in spent oil that needed to be changed. The mac and cheese needed a better base to the sauce and required salt to be mediocre. The grilled salmon was prepared well, so for that I was thankful. I'm uncertain about returning and would likely avoid doing so if it were based on this meal alone. I'd like to think this was just a bad day and would try again.

    Certain things make a place special. Sometimes it's the food, sometimes it's the room, sometimes it's the staff. Rarely do the stars align for all 3. This place has each time I've been there which is over 5. Usually I sort out a restaurant buy ordering calamari, salad and a cocktail. Finally did that today and they hit it out of the park!

    Brown & Loe is a favorite in the City Market area. I've eaten there many times, both lunch and dinner. Food and service are always good. Dinner is quite a bit noisy, but lunch time is quite pleasant.

    After receiving an email about the weekend features, Hubby & I decided to make a reservation. We enjoyed some refreshing cocktails, and oysters and deviled eggs! All fresh & delicious! As an entree, he selected the trout and I chose the crab & smoked smoked salmon cakes. Both were incredible. All in all, it was a wonderful evening! Already look forward to returning!

    Brought my older sister, who was visiting from out of town, for Saturday brunch. We were both disappointed in the limited menu with at least one third of items having ‘spicy’ as their key descriptor. We couldn’t even get bacon without it being “pepper bacon,” which was an element of at least 3 main offerings. Other dishes were described as spicy, Mexican or other similar terms. We were able to substitute smoked ham for the bacon in two things we ordered, but left saying we would never come back on a weekend, with so few lunch selections.
