Husband-wife team Colby and Megan Garrelts met in Chicago at the five-star, five-diamond TRU. After traveling to Las Vegas and Los Angeles, the culinary duo opened Bluestem Restaurant, using it as launch pad for their explorations into progressive American cuisine. Locally grown produce joins with sustainable seafood and meat in their recipes—lauded by the James Beard Foundation and Zagat. And the menu makes every dinner a multi-course story, where smoked lamb belly with barbecue spice precedes beef with fermented grains and whipped bone marrow, before themed desserts pair strawberries with angel-food cake for a perfect ending.
In Bluestem's lounge, guests sink into a more relaxed dining environment, sampling such plates as hanger steak frites and garlic pomme frites while sipping wines and craft cocktails. Whether perched in the lounge, at the hardwood bar, or at an ironed tablecloth, simple elegance abounds. Small table lamps cast warm, homey glows or exposed brick walls that allow diners to work on perfecting their chewing technique.

Dr. John L. Bean and his wife Marsha couldn’t have named Belvoir Winery any more aptly. Belvoir is French for “beautiful view,” and, with 170 lush, vibrant acres to its name, Belvoir Winery certainly doesn’t disappoint. Once a hub for the historic Odd Fellows, the estate now blooms with the vineyards planted by Dr. Bean more than 15 years ago. Vines ripe with golden muscat, chambourcin, and vingnoles grapes anchor the winery’s six signature vinos, which include the floral semi-dry Plumeria and the Lucky Pierre, a sweet red dessert wine. The winery’s newly renovated interior unfolds across five luxurious event spaces, an ornate tasting bar, and a cozy ice-cream shop that overlook the property’s towering 100-year-old trees and stunning marble gazebo. No stranger to supernatural happenings, Belvoir also hosts monthly investigations of its grounds with the Paranormal Research Investigators, a local troupe of ghost hunters also trained in the art of summoning lost car keys.
Lidia Bastianich may be best known as the Emmy-winning host of the PBS series Lidia’s Family Table, wherein she cooks Italian feasts alongside her mother and children. But that’s just one place where the chef combines her passions for food and family. Aside from authoring several cookbooks, Lidia also owns several restaurants, including Lidia’s Italy Kansas City, where loved ones gather to enjoy cuisine inspired by her northern Italian upbringing.
Lidia was born in Pula, Istria, which was once part of Italy. The multicultural city provided her with an expansive palate that is reflected in dishes such as osso buco made with heritage-breed braised pork shank and cabbage rolls stuffed with pork, beef, and veal. However, Lidia's Italy Pittsburgh is best known for its pasta trio, which grants diners unlimited servings of the chef’s choice of three housemade pastas.
A Cozy and Sophisticated Space
Lidia’s Italy Kansas City’s exposed ceiling beams and brick walls give a nod to space's origins as a railroad house. However, the space is remains rustic and elegant. Stained-glass shelves dotted with wine bottles and enormous blown-glass chandeliers offset the dining room's industrial backdrop, casting a warm glow on diners' mouthwatering meals.
