As we get ever closer to opening 1400 by Elderslie, Chef Katharine Elder has expressed profound gratitude for the opportunity to serve our community in such a unique space! Having grown up in the arts, she is inspired by the dedication of so many visual artists in their life-long pursuits of excellence, expression, and adorning the lives of others. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to infuse her work in food with stories and inspiration drawn from the art around her.
The launch of 1400 by Elderslie will also coincide with an exciting change to our hours! WAM will be open Friday evenings until 9 pm. Look forward to enjoying meals and drinks with friends, fun pop-up performances and activities, classes for youth, and, when the weather cooperates, drinks out on the Dan and Frank Carney Sculpture Deck.
As Katharine and her team develop the menu for 1400, she is “delighted to share some long-time Elderslie favorites, elegant but not-too-fussy lunch built upon the work of our local growers (and goats!) as well as some new bold flavors to share for brunch!” 1400’s menu will remain dedicated to seasonality and locality as Elder gives an artistic flair to each dish and beverage.
1400 by Elderslie will have pastries, coffee, and such with lunch service beginning at 11 am Wednesday through Friday and brunch starting at 10 am on Saturday and Sunday. The bar menu will have non-alcoholic and boozy craft cocktails, beer, and a carefully selected wine list to accompany our dishes. Elder has stated that as spring seems to come sooner every year at Elderslie Farm she is ecstatic that their farm will be back in full swing in time to share their farmstead cheeses on charcuterie boards in the afternoons as well as on Fridays when 1400 remains open into the evening!
About Elderslie Farm:
Located in Kechi, Elderslie Farm began in 2010 when George Elder returned home and planted blackberries near his childhood home, just north of Wichita. Today, with his wife Katharine, the farm has grown to include an upscale, Instagram-worthy, farm-to-table restaurant, favorite of summertime-adventure for blackberry lovers, and home to the cutest goats imaginable with excellent locally made cheeses.
