I am happy to say that it is the weekend and today happens to be the start of the Kansas City Restaurant Week for 2016. I have only lived in Kansas City a few years so I love getting a chance to explore….especially trying out new restaurants.
Restaurant Week for 2016 is January 15-24. I have some long time friends who have just relocated to Kansas City and I really want to try out some new restaurants with them. You can check out the entire list of restaurants for the week here. The fixed menus are offered at lunch for $15 and dinner for $33.
I have been to several restaurants on this year’s list. One of my favorites on the list is Gaslight Grill located in Leawood. This is where my husband and I had our wedding luncheon a few years ago and where we continue to go back to for special evenings. Nice atmosphere . . . great food!
I also love Brio Tuscan Grille on the Plaza. The food is good and I love hanging out and people watching on the Plaza. (They also have a really nice Happy Hour.)
This year I think I’d like to try out a couple new places on the Plaza. I want to try Seasons 52 because the lunch and dinner menus for Restaurant Week both look really interesting. And I also think I need to try out out the Melting Pot because it has been years since I had a chance to enjoy fondue.
There are 144 restaurant choices this year so it’s safe to say there will be something to appeal to everyone. The only problem with Restaurant Week is that there isn’t time to go to all the restaurants I want to try! Hope you enjoy your weekend and GO CHIEFS!
