Lawrence – Merchants Pub and Plate

Merchants Pub and Plate is located in the old Merchants National Bank Building at 746 Massachusetts St. in the heart of downtown Lawrence, Kan. Many people may remember this place as Teller’s.  As the names imply, this gastropub is located in a big, beautiful and historic bank building. If you are into architecture, it is worth a trip to this restaurant just to admire its beauty.

The food at Merchants Pub and Plate is a lesson in eclectic artistry and the drink menu features the best from many local area breweries. For the carnivore with pork in mind, some of the options include pork belly brochettes, salads topped with bacon and pork belly, fried pork tenderloin made from locally raised pork.

My friends and I dined on the pork belly brochettes (beautiful pieces of fatty pork meat) and a snack plate featuring a deliciously seasoned pork sausage. We also sampled picked eggs and a pickle martini.

Merchants Pub and Plate and 715 are two Lawrence restaurants I would put on the list for nice places to take a date out to dinner and drinks.  Make a point to check either restaurant on date night, or to celebrate a special occasion, and I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Until next time.
