Destination Kitchen - Norton, Kansas
Destination Kitchen in Norton, Kansas is a combination kitchen store and restaurant with an attached fabric shop called Stitch Up A Storm. The menu is half gourmet sandwiches and half wood fired brick oven pizza. They also have soup, house made pastries and a salad bar.
Linda had the "Good Fellow," a $12.99 brick oven pizza with olive oil, jerk chicken, fresh tomato, roasted red pepper, fresh basil and mozzarella. She had been a little concerned that the jerk chicken would be too spicy, but we didn't notice the "jerk" and she was very happy with the pizza.
I had a Classic Reuben, which they described as layers of juicy corned beef topped with homemade kraut, a slice of Swiss cheese and a smear of their own Russian dressing on marble rye. It was only $7.99 with kettle chips and a pickle and was the best Reuben I have had this year. I thought the various ingredients were perfectly balanced and I could tell it was homemade sauerkraut, even though I hadn't noticed that it said that on the menu.
Our young server didn't ask if we wanted desserts and there were none listed on the menu, but as I was paying at the register near the front of the store, I saw a selection of large, house made cookies. We got three, peanut butter, chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. The first two were good, but it was the best snickerdoodle I have ever had!
