January…for me, the most boring month of the year! However I do look forward to KC Restaurant Week! Beginning January 15 through 24, 2016–restaurants all over the metro area are offering special menus for lunch ($15) and dinner ($33) with a portion of the proceeds going to various local charities and foundations. Reservations fill up fast!!! You can reserve a table directly from the website.
Note that most of the restaurants participating are locally owned and operated. This is the perfect time to try out that new place you’ve heard about..or check out eateries outside your dining radius. Below is a list of the Brookside/Waldo restaurants that are offering special menus:
75th St Brewery, 520 W 75th St
Aixois, 251 E 55th St
Avenues Bistro, 338 W 63rd St
Charlie Hooper’s, 12 W 63rd St
District Pour House & Kitchen, 7122 Wornall
Lew’s Grill & Bar, 7539 Wornall
Louie’s Wine Dive, 7100 Wornall
Michael Forbes Bar and Grill, 128 W 63rd St
Summit Bar and Grill, 500 W 75th St
Waldo Pizza, 7433 Broadway
The Well Bar and Rooftop, 7421 Broadway
A portion of the money raised during the ten day event will go to Boys Grow, Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired and Cultivate Kansas City. Many restaurants have already posted their special menus at www.kcrestaurantweek.com; there is also an app you can download.
Gather up some friends and try a new locally owned restaurant during KC Restaurant Week!
