Housed under the culinary umbrella of McClain Restaurant Group, four of Independence Square's brightest culinary stars amuse diners with a range of flavors and funky dining spaces. For a historic meal overlooking the Square, choose a sit-down lunch at Ophelia's Restaurant & Inn, where plates include the twisted quesadillas, which meld together cranberries, onions, peppers, and asiago cheese ($8). Ophelia's dinner menu, which can be sung aloud over live jazz, features the peppered K.C. strip jerky, a classic composition of soft pretzel bread, hot cracklins, and Boulevard Wheat mustard ($6), and the 16-ounce horseradish crusted rib eye, grilled to order and drizzled with port-wine reduction ($24).
For more than 30 years, Dennis Myers has employed his stylistic savvy to enliven residential, retail, and commercial spaces in projects ranging from simple remodels and redecorations to ground-up new construction. With a design sensibility that tends toward the transitional and contemporary, Myers’ professional approach is to interpret the wants and needs of the client with his expert knowledge of space, palette, and texture to bring out the utility and personality of each room. During a consultation, Myers will take a complete look at the house, identifying the best paint colors, making suggestions for furniture placement, and suggesting renovations and updates to areas such as outdated kitchens and frumpy disco ballrooms. Unlike Grandad’s preTechnicolor memories or daguerreotypes of Franklin Pierce, Myers is no stranger to color, drawing on a broad palette of assorted hues to modify the mood of any residential roomscape.
