On a recent trip, we stumbled across a gem in Davenport Iowa, the Kitchen Brigade located inside Stompbox Brewery. The passion the chef puts into his food is clearly tasted in this exquisite small menu of unique dishes. One of our favorites had to be the Pork Tomahawk Schnitzel with mustard cream, onion fennel relish, and brown butter spaetzle. The size of this thing alone will take you aback. If you are looking for a place to awaken your tastebuds in the Quad Cities, Kitchen Brigade should be near the top of your list.
This restaurant is located inside Stompbox Brewery, which by the by has some amazing brews. Some of our team was in Davenport Iowa for an event and as we do in every city found a brewery that serves food as well; nothing better than a great meal and flight of delicious beer after a long 12-hour day. We were not going into the evening expecting to be WOW'd, but we sure were wrong. You would not suspect the level of culinary delight from a small kitchen window in a local brewery; in Davenport IA for that matter. (No offense to all you Davenport'ers, but you know what we mean this level of food is normally found in large metropolitan cities). From the moment our appetizers arrived, we knew we were in for a treat. The meal was flawless and the chef even made a point to come out to every table to ensure all of his guests were happy. If you are even in Davenport, be sure to give Kitchen Brigade a try!
