Missouri Barn Dinners | Six Culinary Adventures

The Missouri Barn Dinner Series offers six exclusive evenings featuring a delicious outdoor dining experience, designed and prepared by six talented chefs. Each dinner begins with a cocktail hour, during which guests will enjoy an aperitif and the opportunity to stroll through the Gardens before gathering under the eaves of the barn for the meal. Each chef utilizes seasonal ingredients from the Heartland Harvest Garden, the nation’s largest edible landscape which allows guests to explore local flavors and learn more about the unique ingredients that make up their meal. Seating is limited.


Sunday, June 24  |  Bryan Zachery Sparks, executive chef of Broadway Bistro

Enjoy tender lamb smoked in an underground pit plus seasonal vegetables sourced from Powell Gardens’ own Heartland Harvest Garden. Chef Bryan has been named by Feast Magazine as a rising young chef to watch. He’s also been spreading the Powell Gardens gospel (see his Q&A) while piloting our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for chefs. The produce he receives in his box each week is turned into menu items at Broadway Bistro featuring Powell Garden’s produce.

This night’s three-course dinner features a combination of pre-set and family-style courses. Guests can expect a unique menu plus a few tasty surprises along the way, as well as a tour of the culinary gardens by the horticulture staff.

Note: The previously listed 5 p.m. seating has been combined with 6:30 p.m. seating.
