Yesterday a new local restaurant opened in downtown Muncie, Barn Brasserie. Being the curious diners that we are, the boys and I hurried down today to check it out. We love non-chain restaurants and this one sounded pretty intriguing. The menu is described as American style food with French influences. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced and everything is made from scratch.
The restaurant is located in the spot where White River Landing used to be. The new restaurant is quite a bit different from the former fishing/outdoor theme. The wood paneling on the walls is about the only aspect of the old decor that remains the same. Even the layout is a bit different.
Our verdict is that all really LOVED the food and can't wait to go back again!
Andrew tries out some mandarin key lime soda. When he finished that one, he chose strawberry rhubarb soda for the refill.
Robby decides to start with a watermelon cream soda
While waiting for our food, I grabbed a crayon and started drawing on the butcher paper coving the table. The kids freaked out at first - they've never eaten anywhere that had coloring paper covering the tables. I'm a terrible artist, but this is my attempt at drawing the meal I ordered
Robby ordered the special of the day, gyro panini with tzatziki and fries. Included with each meal is choice of one house-made sauce. Robby selects the ketchup.
Andrew ordered the kids' fish fingers plate. He refused to wait until I photographed his meal before he started eating. His fish was all gone faster than I could believe! He also selected the ketchup for his sauce.
I ordered the brasserie burger and fries. For my sauce, I chose the ranch.
For dessert, we shared a slice of lemon chess pie.
Robby says this is the "best pie in the world!"
I attempted to take some photos of the menu, but I see now that they didn't turn out very clear. I recommend visiting and seeing the menu in person.
