Restaurant Week Day 1 (and the Obligatory Jasper’s Reference)

75th Street Brewery Scallop EntreeKansas 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?



  1. Jasper, Come On Man…join the community of Kansas City Restaurants who are taking part in restaurant week.

    Seriously, your own prix fixe menu this week? That is just cheeky and lame. You are too classy for that kind of game.

    You are a leader in the restaurant community, step up to the plate (pun intended) and be part of the 2012 KCRW.

  2. Spoke with Jasper last night, and I can eat a big ole’plate of crow for him!

    My unwavering support of KCRW had me say something before I knew the facts. And in the end it is great passion for the community we serve that drives all of us in this industry,

    Kudos to Jasper for all he does and kudos to everyone in the industry for supporting KC Restaurant Week!

    • Hey Gayle,

      Thanks for that. It takes a lot of class to apologize, especially in public!

      I am not looking forward to eating a big ol’ plate of Webster House on Saturday Night even more! Would love to chat with you some day about Webster House because my family and I love it!
