During a recent trip to Wichita, my wife and I -- both transplanted Midwesterners now living and working in the Washington, DC metroplex -- had the pleasure of visiting the Uptown Bistro (301 N. Mead). Folks, you are lucky to have a place like this in your midst. Four of us had outstanding full dinners (appetizers, salads, entrees, desserts), two good bottles of wine, and the tab came to $120 before tip. The food rivaled any of the best places in DC; I had a particularly memorable halibut wrapped in shredded filo dough (kataifi). We met Jeremy, the Executive Chef there, and (to the audible groans of our Wichita dining companions) told him, only part kiddingly, that he should move to DC and open a place here! I grew up in the restaurant business, and the most important thing I look for in a restaurateur is that s/he cares about her/his craft and her/his customers. You've got a gem here.
