Me and the Ladies Who Lunch

Civic boosters in Independence are proud of Ophelia’s, and rightly so. It’s a charming restaurant located on the old courthouse square. Surrounded by the "ladies who lunch" set when I dined at Ophelia’s Tuesday, I still enjoyed my somewhat overpriced meal. Replete with smart light fixtures, a handsome bar and tasteful background music, it’s not dissimilar to Houston’s. While I wouldn’t drive thirty minutes to eat at Ophelia’s, I’d happily travel there to take in the whole town square vibe. And if given a choice between it and the plethora of chain restaurants along nearby I-70, I’ll opt for Ophelia’s every time.
