River Market Restaurant Chases “That Feeling”

The Farmhouse strives to live up to its name – devoting itself to farm-to-market, tip-to-tail food for more than a decade.

Owner/chef Vincent Parades credits his mother and grandmother for inspiring his restaurant career. He started cooking at age 7, hoping to match the quality of the dishes prepared by his elders.

“When it comes out better than you expected, you just chase that feeling,” Parades says.

He’s been chasing that feeling at The Farmhouse, 300 Delaware St. in the River Market, since 2009. Hear the rest of his story on this week’s installment of “The Block.”

“The Block” takes viewers on a journey through Kansas City’s streets to get a sense of the people and cuisine – the fabric of KC’s neighborhoods. But this isn’t just a food show. There’s history, culture and unknown facts about Kansas City. You’ll go inside kitchens, see how food and drinks are made, and peek into the lives of everyday Kansas Citians working in the service industry.


“The Block” is a series produced by G10 Creative. Watch for Flatland digital shorts on Fridays, and full episodes on KCPT.
