Five years ago, Kurt and Diane set out to live the dream of bringing a destination dining experience closer to home; they did this literally by building Elements on their 50-acre homestead! Relax in our cozy dining room; where the entertainment includes conversation with friends and a view of the Chef preparing your meal. Elements Destination Restaurant celebrated its Fifth Year Anniversary in June of 2018; the Elements’ Team is proud to have received a 5 Star rating every year we have been open!
Open Kitchen Concept
Having an open kitchen is very important to the Elements’ team; because the kitchen is open to the dining room, it creates a fun, interactive atmosphere and allows us to have a relationship with everyone who comes through the front door! You can watch your meal being prepared, talk with the cooks and…you cannot miss the aroma! In addition to seating in the dining room and on the deck, we also offer two “front row seats” at the end of the cooking line to allow guests an up-close view of the magic taking place.
Tantalize Your Taste Buds
Our style of food is Continental cuisine, with a twist, featuring Old and New World recipes from Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, France and New Orleans; as well as dishes from Grandmother’s recipe book. We pride ourselves on our handcrafted pasta, crackers, sauces and specialty items that are made with personal recipes and the freshest ingredients. The menu varies from week to week, allowing you to try something new every time you visit! Eat from the Ála Carte Menu or pick an entrée for a Four Course meal. The meal comes with the weekend’s appetizer, salad, the entrée of your choosing, dessert and all the coffee or ice tea you can drink. We also have a great selection of wine, spirits and beer!

Letter from the Chef
Spring time……one of my favorite times of year. The cool weather allows me to be outside and get things done with out dying in the heat. Now May in Missouri, I don’t care for too much. Always too much rain, scary storms and all leads to the humidity and heat.
A recent post was of new raised garden boxes I built. First, I want to thank Bosh for educating me on the fact that there’s more to the boxes then just throwing dirt in them.
The other person I want to thank is Jason, my son-in-law. He owns Premier Carports, www.premiercarports.com, and builds commercial carports by the hundreds and residential, if you need one or 20 carports check out the website. His carports are not the silly little aluminum ones. Jason had scrap metal that he cut for brackets for the garden boxes. I just had to drill the 150 or so holes in the brackets for about 3 hours.
The cost of the garden boxes really is not much, it is just a bunch of work. The best part is they will last for years and I am not on the ground weeding any more.
We also have had the deck at Elements stained and sealed this spring by Stain Pro. They did a good job at a fair price and would recommend them for sure. Check them out at, www.TheStainPro.com, or email Shawna, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Deck is open and now is the time to come!
Elements is now into its 6th year in business…..I am amazed at how many locals still do not know we are here. Please help and keep spreading the word.
I am working on a pasta class and a couple of weekday nights. I will let you know soon when they will take place.
Thanks to all for support and telling people about us!
