…Well, that’s not exactly true. In 3 hours, it will be Friday, but technically most of the restaurants featured in this year’s Kansas City Restaurant Week won’t open for business until 11 or so. So, technically, I guess I have to wait a bit no longer.
Which is good, because I can’t wait much longer for another edition of
Kansas City Restaurant Week
Okay, real, quick review from last year. What is Kansas City Restaurant Week? Well for the next 9 days, restaurants in the greater Kansas City area (including places like Weston and Liberty) will offer special $15 lunches and $30 dinners. And when I mean special, I’m talking about chef’s special, pull out all the stops, food so good you’ll slap your momma specials. I still remember the duck confit salad I got at 75th Street Brewery last year. So good. Oh, and even better, all proceeds go to help Harvester’s. Eat well, help the community. What more can you ask?
Anyway, I just wanted everyone to know that Restaurant Week starts tomorrow and that you only have 18 meals over the next 9 days (well, 27 if you do brunch, lunch, and dinner) so you need to get planning. Now!
As for me? Well, I figure I’ll be taking my wife back to Webster House. If not, I’ll be sleeping on the couch until next year. But really, my strategy will be to use Restaurant Week to try a couple of places that have been on my list that I have never been to: JJ’s, Trezo Mare, The Majestic, Starker’s and Raglan Road. Then, given half a chance, I’ll hit The Farmhouse to see my friend Chef Michael and The American, to see my friend Chef Debbie Gold.
And when it’s all said and done, 10 days from tomorrow when Restaurant Week is all over… it’ll be gym month. I can only imagine the rich, decadent delights I’m about to need to burn off.
