Friday Feature - Amics

Amics is a Mediterranean Cafe located on Main Street in McPherson. The bright colors of the restaurant make its new location easy to find. I was recently treated to a private event at Amics with some friends, where I was able to get to know a little more about Amics and its owners, Shane and Anne Kirchner. Anne had created a fun cooking demonstration for our group and she was absolutely delightful! Her passion for Spain and the Mediterranean style of cooking was overflowing from her as she explained to us about this region and its heart-healthy menus.

(That's Anne, WAY down on the other end of the table, cooking and laughing!)

Currently, Amics is only open for lunch, but plans are underway to to include a Spanish-inspired tapas bar Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. This is fantastic news for our guests that want to enjoy dinner downtown over the weekend (and we LOVE that it's within walking distance of Maple Memories). You can check out their current lunch menu here. Next time I am in, I have plans to try the Matisse Salad...Chicken salad with mandarin oranges, pineapple, celery, green pepper, sugared almonds & honey yogurt dressing served on a bed of mixed greens...mmmm...sounds yummy! I'll leave you with a few pictures of Amics (keep in mind it was after hours when we were there and they won't REALLY make you sit on top of the tables!)

"Creating friendships through the art of food." LOVE IT!
