About the restaurant
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.

Our experience at Brown and Loe was exceptional. Everyone ordered something different so we could all have a taste and each meal was delicious. The meatloaf meal with green beans that had lots of bacon in them and creamy goat cheese mashed potatoes may have been the star but the pork chop dinner was just as good. It had some kind of bacon jam on the top that complimented it so well. Our server was great (blonde guy; first name started with a J). He was very knowledgeable about the menu and made fantastic recommendations when asked. He was attentive but not overly so. Overall, the four of us had a great experience.

We were celebrating our anniversary, and they reserved us a table on the patio as requested. Our server was very kind, while still handling a lot of tables while we were there. My fish and chips were close to the top in this town (I've had them in England), and my wife's salmon blt was worthy of a repeat . . . 2 for 2 :)
