Fine dining nearby: El Dorado Chop House

A dish from the new El Dorado Chop House

El Dorado, the community 30 miles northeast of Wichita, has a new fine dining restaurant.

El Dorado Chop House opened last week in a building at 2529 W. Central, which sits in front of the Best Western Hotel. The building previously housed Double D’s Family Restaurant.

Owner David Key, who also owns the Huddle House in El Dorado, remodeled the restaurant, adding booths and linen-covered tables, a glowing bar and more. He hired executive chef Owen Moore, who grew up in the area but worked at Vail Resorts in Colorado.

The menu is a mix of appetizers, salads, pastas and entrees such as steaks, pork chops, chicken and more.
