We travel from SC to Denver every 6 months or so and like the slightly longer trip through Wichita due to the less crowded roads, but also due to the Drury on the river and the co-located AVI restaurant. It was a Monday night, uncrowded, and all we wanted was a good drink, quality meal with decent wine and a chance to replay the visit to our grandkids while we shook the dust off. AVI is one of the best venues we’ve found for this purpose, anywhere. We had a crab cake and salads (Grilled Caesar and AVI BLT); fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Our most pleasant surprise on this trip was our waitress / mixologist, Shannon, who was outgoing, unobtrusively attentive, full of local history when we engaged her, and skilled at the bar. She even ran downstairs to the kitchen to get blue cheese with which to stuff my martini olives. She made our evening the best possible. Thanks Shannon!
