OK, yeah, I know... it's not like a brownie with vanilla ice cream on top is anything close to original. As a matter of fact, my culinary edu-ma-cated hypothesis is that the multitude of brownie sundae incarnations are possibly the most overdone desserts in America. And to tell you the truth, I don't even love brownies.

So why do I mention this one? Well, because this brownie is a particularly good one. It comes cooked in its own cast iron skillet with the maximum amount of crispy-baking-pan-edgitude, and then becomes the vessel for an ice cold scoop of vanilla bean ice cream that slowly melts out from the center into this chocolatey treat. Drizzle caramel & chocolate sauce, a bit of powered sugar for a beautiful presentation, and you've got a really good Brownie a la Mode that's worth mentioning.

The rest of the menu consists of tasty meats smoked onsite, Tavern Pickle Jar filled with seasonal vegetables, BBQ Pork Sandwich, Kansas City style Burnt Ends, and a host of other tavern classics. Whatever you choose, the menu is designed to pair nicely with their incredible spirits program. As a huge bourbon fan, I have to mention that the bourbon & whiskey list is an awesome thing! There's a clear focus on bourbon and all the favorites are present. Try them individually or West End offers a variety of preselected flights or build your own.
