As of July 23 there will be a new restaurant on the northwest corner of 3rd and Ohio in downtown Sedalia.

It's called Truffle & Sorrel, LLC and it's owned by executive chef Christopher M. Paszkiewicz.

The new seafood-based restaurant is located in the historic Trust Building and adjoins Paszkiewicz' ice cream shop, which is now open for business.

“So I'm carrying Tillamook Ice Cream out of Oregon,” Paszkiewicz said on Tuesday afternoon. “We'll have some novelties and some sodas, and some snacks, you know, for Katy Trail riders, and I plan on adding to the selection.”
“I have three main staples, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla bean, and I will have five other spots that are always changing,” Paszkiewicz said on Wednesday morning.

Hours at the ice cream store are 2 - 8 p.m.Tuesday through Thursday, and 2 – 9 on Friday and Saturday.

At Truffle and Sorrel, Paszkiewicz plans to be open by 10:30 a.m., for lunch every day until 3 p.m.

“Then we'll do a happy hour Tuesday through Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m. Then our dinner hours will be from 4:30 'til 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 4:30 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday,” Paszkiewicz said.

The restaurant sits on the first floor of the former bank building seen in so many historical photos and postcards that feature the early days of Sedalia, founded in 1860. The building was restored and refurbished over a period of time a few years ago by developer Brian Smith, of CSC Construction.

Paszkiewicz has been a chef since 2004. “I started in Florida, then worked in Arkansas at the Crescent Hotel, in Kansas City at the Hilton President, the Mariott on the Plaza, and some pretty fun places as well, Paszkiewicz recalled.

Will there be any of his specialty dishes that we can enjoy at Truffle & Sorrel?

“Shrimp and grits for sure, everybody's asking for it,” Paszkiewicz noted. “We'll also have a lot of Southern-inspired seafood dishes. Shrimp & grits will be from New Orleans and the Carolinas. And then we'll also have a Crab Boil, a Shrimp Boil and a Crawdad Boil.”

Paszkiewicz said he has a full staff and is ready to serve the community. His new restaurant seats 45, and everyone will have a nice view of the bank vault. He noted that he will eventually offer outdoor seating as well.

“I love it, Paszkiewicz said. “Best view in town. And I’m a three-minute bike ride from the Katy depot and also three minutes from the Amtrak station.”

See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
