The story

What we do

It all starts with passion

Botanica is more than a restaurant, it is a gathering space – a lively place for friends and family to gather for any occasion in the beautiful surrounds of Wildwood, MO.  The concept was envisioned by Ryan Sherring of Six Mile Bridge Brewery with the mission of creating a modern space for people of all ages to enjoy exciting beverages, exquisite food and build positive relationships.

Executive Chef, Ben Welch (formerly of Big Baby Q and The Midwestern), brings a Nuova Italian menu with a Southern American twist – a reflection of his culinary experiences and influences.  The comfort-driven focus of Italian food and the flavors of the American South provide a unique and harmonious blend for a flavorful menu.

Whether you are looking to have a cocktail with friends on our dog-friendly patio, have an intimate date night or bring a large group to one of our two event rooms, we are thrilled to have the honor of sharing our love of hospitality and good food with you.  We hope you’ll join us!
