Kc Restaurant Week 2014 review

Restaurant Week is over.
“No, say it isn’t so!”
“It is so…..”

I’m gushing over my KCRW2014 experience, I feel ( for the most part ) restaurants are really embracing the dine-out rush and the spirit of the event.  I want to say everything and anything good about the steak, service, and experience, but alas this isn’t a food blog

“Topicality is essential to maintaining an informative and lively discussion”  Debater’s Handbook circa 2003 )

so I will stick to a brief one review on all of the restaurants I visited and my plans for next year!

Favorite restaurant for 2014: Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
4.5/5
The 500 degree plate sealed the deal, simple and true to its ingredients, but still so yummy! ( -.5 for taking my dessert before I was done 😦 )

Pierponts Steakhouse
4/5
Great new additions to the menu ( and they offer a similar menu year-round! )

McCormick and Schmidt
3.5/5
Food was great, service was not.

Fogo De Chao
3/5
Came twice, over opinion: Too busy to stay awesome; the long waiting time grated on my nerves. However, it’s a good time to really take in what the salad bar has to offer.

Plaza III
2.5/5
Food is true to its ingredients, but rather bland and overall boring. Go to Houston’s or save up for Ruth’s Chris.

Full reviews for the restaurants are on Yelp ( I’ve got 2 accounts so Message me if you can’t find me ) and they are fairly extensive …..I’m trying to make it to Yelp Elite, Can you tell ?

Top Picks for 2015

  • Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse
  • Capital Grille
  • McCormick and Schmidts
  • North

Just realized I’ve been collecting doilies from all of the restaurants I visited so a Craft tutorial should be coming soon! ( aha! I AM still on topic 😀 ) 

KC Restaurant Week!

Kansas City Restaurant Week is Here!

Who’s excite !?!  Restaurant Week is probably the coolest invention ever – no joke.  KCRW combines my favorite 3 things, Great food, New discoveries, and Philanthropy!

So you’ve been living on a deserted island for the past 10 years and don’t know what Restaurant week is?

Well, Restaurant week is a city-wide fundraising event organized by restaurant associations to help raise funds for local charities. Area restaurants prepare 2-course lunch menus as well as 3 or 4-course dinner menus, each costing $15 or $33 dollars respectively.  Kansas City Restaurant week traditionally benefits Harvesters which stocks neighborhood food pantries.  

There’s more restaurants participating this year that last and most are offering really great menus! ( and remember, you’re helping local charities raise funds during a traditionally slow Fund-raising period! )

( here’s my spiffy KCRW Planner to help you during your KCRW Planning straight!)

KCRW is unlike anything else in the WORLD ( might be a hyperbole , but I doubt it!)  I save-up all my post Holiday meet-up for this period.

 Go out, have fun, and savor those ‘philanthropy endorphins’ because you deserve it!

Call me for a dinner date!
