Steak, oysters and craft cocktails are just some of what’s being served at Kansas City’s newest steakhouse, Stock Hill. The 14,000-foot eatery opens December 1st in the former Board of Trade building at 4800 Main St. Get a first look at Stock Hill’s elegant space before they officially open to the public.
Branded as a “classic steakhouse for the new generation,” Stock Hill offers refined dining with a Midwestern spin.
The cocktail lounge boasts emerald tufted couches adjoining a marble and copper accented bar area. Look up, and chandeliers hang from the 24-foot ceilings. Up the stairs, a second floor offers a balcony dining room and views of the lounge.
Just looking at the bar is guaranteed to make you want a drink. Thankfully, Stock HIll’s menu has several solid options – from signature cocktails, to traditional sips, local brews and wine. I suggest ordering off the Signature Cocktail menu, which includes six unique drink offerings. The Loose Park Swizzle ($12, pictured) is quite the stunner – its layered look coming from a combination of gin, honey, apple, mint, lemon and bitters. Other cocktails include the Kansas City Steakhouse Punch ($12) made with local J. Rieger Whiskey, Chinato and tea, and the Smoking Hill ($12) that comes with hickory smoked ice.
Ordering steak at a steakhouse would be the obvious (and good) choice. And you can’t go wrong with Stock Hill’s selection – all sourced from local ranches in the Midwest. Steaks are separated on the menu by Prime Wet Aged, Signature Dry Aged, Wagyu and Filet Mignon and range from $32-$68.
Stock Hill’s non-beef options are not to missed. A standout on the lunch menu is the Alaskan King Crab Roll ($19) seasoned simply with Old Bay and topped with peppadew pepper relish and a pickle. Accompaniments include homemade chips and fregola pasta salad, but I strongly suggest ordering the Triple Cooked French Fries ($10) – they’re totally worth the extra carbs and calories (and that savory crunch…there’s nothing like it!)
For dessert, the Meyer Lemon Tart ($10), served with hibiscus jam and crème fraiche ice cream, should not be missed.
Be sure to check out Stock Hill when they open to the public at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, December 1.
