Luis’ Place, located in the garden level at 5th and Kansas, is one of Topeka’s greatest hidden gems. Hidden on the garden level of 5th and Kansas, the restaurant lacks any visible signage. What it doesn’t lake is explosive flavor profiles and an amazing dining experience provided by Chef Luis E. Guillén (New City Cafe), his family and staff. Luis’ Place is available for private catered events and is only open to the public on Friday (lunch and dinner), monthly wine and tapas night and special occasions. One of those specials occasions is just around the corner on Thursday, May 9. The Milbrandt Wine Dinner at Luis’ Place will feature Milbrandt wines (Washington) poured with notes from the wine maker himself, Butch Milbrandt. The wines will be paired with Luis’ Latin flavors – all served with gratitude, smiles and lots of fun (what regulars of Luis’ know is as consistent as his tenderloin).

Pioneer of the Columbia Valley wine region, Butch Milbrandt saw potential in Eastern Washington. He’s one of the first to drive a stake into what is now known as a world-class wine destination. In 1997, this fourth-generation farmer took a risk in planting grapes and soon became recognized for helping establish two of the top AVAs in Washington State: Ancient Lakes and Wahluke Slope.

The Milbrandts are celebrating nearly two decades of 90-point wines. Their Evergreen Vineyard was named “Vineyard of the Year” by Seattle Magazine and over 12 varietals have been awarded “Best Buy” or “Editor’s Choice” by Wine Enthusiast.

Now a multi-generational brand with Butch and his son Buck taking the lead, Milbrandt Vineyards remains a symbol of perseverance and reward.  A premium wine tier as well as an introductory wine tier is available nationwide, both delivering uncompromising quality.
