Kansas City Restaurant Week…
is finally here! And I know what I said yesterday: that I was going to use Kansas City Restaurant Week to try places I’d never been before. But…I just couldn’t resist. I had to go back to 75th Street Brewery for another helping of their amazing duck confit salad.
Which I devoured. It was so good. The duck confit was tender and just a little bit salty, the mustard vinaigrette was sharp, the goat cheese mild, and the golden raisins were sweet. It was as perfect as any salad has any right to be. So amazing. I can’t imaginer a finer salad anywhere. (Note: the picture to the left is the entree scallops I had…not the salad. I ate that much too quickly.)
Anyway, tomorrow is another Restaurant Week er…day and I think I am headed to La Bodega. Aww yeah.
And the Obligatory Jasper’s Reference
Hey, I just wanted to remind everyone that Jasper Restaurant’s is doing his own hawt prix fixe special right now. For $25, you pick an appetizer (I had the polenta, but I could have done the lobster cappuchino), an entree (I had pasta because Jasper’s pasta is awesome, and you get a tartuffo for dessert. All for $25. You can’t beat that with a stick.
Although, when I ordered said meal, it’s not like I got the tartuffo. No, when it comes to ice cream rolled in cookie crumbs, that goes Mrs. WellDone. I had to content myself with cannolis.
I was okay with that.
Anyway, Kansas Citians, you need to go and eat something. Try some place new or go back to some place you’ve never tried before. We have a bunch of great restaurants…what are you waiting for?
