Larger plates from talented Executive Chef Brian Aaron at Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen have included sesame seared ahi tuna, garlic grilled shrimp salad, and herbed chevre polenta.
From the restaurant's website:
"Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen is your local urban destination located
in the Crossroads Art District. Enjoy a glass of wine from the eclectic
wine list. Whether a novice wanting to explore or an avid wine drinker,
we offer wines by the taste, glass or bottle, to satisfy everyone's
"The restaurant looks pretty much like it did as the ill-fated JP Wine
Bar, which formerly occupied the space. The wine list here is extensive,
and Tannin still offers a smart cocktail selection. But the food is
more interesting and accessible since the return of executive chef Brian
Aaron, a former JP Wine Bar chef who left Kansas City for a couple of
years to oversee a restaurant kitchen in Fayetteville, Arkansas."
