|Grünauer offers Kansas City natives and visitors an Austrian-styled|
dining experience from their Freight House location
Unlike Union Station, which was torn down in favor of newer development, Kansas City's Freight House was saved from destruction by investors who renovated the structure into restaurant spaces, including Lidia Bastianich's Italian-cuisine-based eatery Lidia's and Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue, a higher-end major player in Kansas City's barbecue scene. City Tavern had been the third restaurant at this building until 2010 when it closed; in its place came something of what seemed to be an upscale version of Columbus-area eateries Mozart's and Schmidt's.
|Grünauer offers a more relaxed setting outdoors and a more intimate one|
within, with more formal table settings, high ceilings and a dabbling of
artistic flair appropriate for the neighborhood and building.
The food (and likewise the prices) rates as a step up from what Columbus-area diners would find at places like Mozart's and Schmidt's. Aside from the wurst, schnitzel and goulash, Grünauer offers classic Austrian dishes such as Tafelspitz (beef in a consomme, with root vegetables and apple horseradish, chive, and creamed spinach sauces), variations on Rostbraten (center-cut strip loin), and Kalbsleber Berliner Art (sautéed veal liver with mashed potatoes and caramelized apples.)
|Paired with German-styled beers, our selections of Paprikahuhn (top|

delicious selections off of Grünauer's Viennese-based menu
