Culinaria (for new website).png
One of the most basic Mediterranean creeds is the enjoyment, respect and pleasure of food.
— Nicki Heverling

Culinaria was launched in 2009 as a customized catering service, specializing in fresh foods and made-from-scratch cuisine. After eight years in the events industry in Lawrence, Kansas, husband-and-wife owners, Regan and Aaron Pillar, craved greater connection to their community. So in the spring of 2017, they decided to take the plunge and open up the doors to the Culinaria event space as a full-service restaurant. Inspired by the cuisine of the Mediterranean and blended with strong Midwestern roots, Culinaria Mediterranean Kitchen creates nourishment for the body, mind, and soul.
