We had a wonderful lunch today via pickup from downtown. We ordered bread and butter pickles, a Frisco burger, wings, and a crispy chicken sandwich. Very fresh, great service. Loved the touch of packaging the sandwich greens separately from the sandwich. Thank you!
Lydia by the sea 🌊.
Do you take reservations ?
Thank you staff!

I wish you guys would have ramen on a weekend lunch special sometime! We drive from the QC’s to eat here and we loveeeeeee it! I’m a ramen freak and wanna try the ramen so bad!!!
Yoo the playlist rn is 🔥🔥🔥! I need this in my life, pls share! 😬
Ate there for the first time today. (I never go downtown). Blown away by the food and service. Gonna have to start going downtown to explore their menu. Our server Grace rocked!
Will you have Ramon tonight?
Dear Pullman, I think you served me some of the best French fries I have enjoyed. Thanks for the food and conversation. I'll see you again.

New menu, who dis?

Stop in to check out some of these new fall menu items! Cozy up with mushroom risotto or seared scallops, satisfy your snack attack with mushroom toast or our rustic chicken liver mousse both served with local crumb bread! Get your daily dose of veggies with the duck confit kale salad, the vegan, yes vegan, Bánh mì, or our squash and kale salad.

Pullman brunch squad, if you haven’t gotten to try the new bacon and egg sandwich, the black pepper maple bacon is everything and and the vegetable frittata is what they are talking about when they say “start your day right”
Obviously we are biased but come check it out for yourself! 🤤🤤

Say hi to Adam!
Hi Adam!
Although you do not get to see him all too often in the front of the restaurant, he can often be found behind the scenes, helping to make the magic happen. Adam came through swinging a couple weeks ago when he shared with us his family banana bread recipe. Can you swoon for a loaf of fruit bread. Yes. Yes you can. The staff loved it so much that it is our dessert special for the weekend! Mom’s recipe, modified a little by Adam, a touch of icing, a whole lot of yum. Next time you see Pullman’s best dressed walking through the restaurant, say hey!

Hey all, we just got a bunch food fresh produce delivered from Echollective farm, Kroul farm, and Organic Greens. They will be showcases in three different features this weekend.

First, Friday Night Ramen with tomato aroma oil, shio tare, marinated cucumbers, sweet corn, kale, and scallion

Blistered shish*tos, yellow grape tomatoes, red onion, garlic, and chives make for a great shared plate to start!

Lastly, an Eggplant caponata sandwich with tomato, farm greens, dill vinaigrette, and sun chips because nothing says summer like chips on a sandwich!

Did I mention, all the specials this weekend are vegan!

Hey all! We would love to take a moment to introduce you to Chef Ben Young. He joined us here as our new sous chef about six weeks ago and has been killing it!
Many of you have probably been served a meal crafted by this man as he has made his mark in the Iowa city food scene or maybe seen his art hanging around town (if not, check some of it out over at our good friends @nododowntown)
We are excited for him to be here, we hope you get a chance to say hi next time you see him across the counter!
