evening out with friends

A few weeks ago, we met friends in the small Flint Hills town of Florence, KS --- fantastic steak! As it should be, having been cooked by actual cattlemen, at the Merchantile.

The restaurant is open on a limited basis, owned and run by a large ranching family. Only one item on menu: really good steak! (They also offer chicken for finicky people) -- plus old-fashioned goodies as hors d' oeuvres, home-cooked sides and dessert.

The small town's water tower boasts that their water is 99.96% pure spring water.


  1. Sounds wonderful, Vicky, and what a find!

    1. It seems odd that such a TINY town as Florence has such a great eating place, while our town has nothing but fast-food places poorly run.

  2. Guess it takes just the right individuals to do something like our Ventana! SO glad they're there...
