I’ve got an answer for that annoying daily question…”what’s for dinner?”. Make plans now to participate in Kansas City’s annual Restaurant Week, January 13-22.
Restaurant Week began as a way to get more business into restaurants during a traditionally slow dining out period, but it also benefits local non profit organizations. This year, part of the proceeds from each meal will go to Cornerstones of Care, along with other organizations.
Here’s how it works: restaurants across the city offer special pre fix menu options for lunch ($20) and dinner ($40). You’ll find all kinds of cuisine choices, from casual to pricy; and you can order carry out, delivery or dine in. Web searches are easy–by cuisine, part of town, or special diet. Reservations are strongly recommended, especially for the most popular spots on the weekends. Download the app–it’s very easy to use; you’ll see menus and can check table availability. This is the perfect opportunity to try a new, locally owned place with friends or grab a quick lunch with co-workers. Many Brookside and Waldo restaurants are participating; here is a partial list, including Aixois, The Well, Boru, Charlie Hooper’s, Plate, Red Door Grill, South of Summit and Summit Grill.
Although this can be the most boring time of year……there’s always Restaurant Week to look forward to (and hopefully, the Chiefs advancing in the playoffs!) Fortunately Restaurant Week is actually ten days long, starting tomorrow, January 10, 2020 and continuing through Sunday January 19. Many Brookside/Waldo restaurants are participating, including:
Avenues Bistro, Brookside Barrio, Charlie Hoopers, District Pour House & Kitchen, Lew’s Bar and Grill, Louie’s Wine Dive, Michael Forbes Bar and Grill, Plate, Red Door Wood Fired Grill, Summit Grill, Waldo Pizza, The Well, Brick+Mortar, Boru. All locally owned restaurants! Prices are $15 for lunch, $35 for dinner, with options from special RW menus.
Reservations fill up fast, so get some friends together and discover a new place you’ve not been to before. A portion of the proceeds benefit Don Bosco Centers. Check out the Restaurant Week website for menus. Thank you for supporting Restaurant Week and our locally owned businesses!
January…the most boring month of the year! The weather is cold, trees are barren and everything outside looks gray and dingy..except for the bright, soft focus sunsets! Hard to muster up the energy to go out after you are settled in at home….
That’s why January is the perfect time for Kansas City Restaurant Week! From Jan 16-25, we have ten days of bargain priced meals at many of KC’s finest restaurants. This is the time to try the pricier spot you may have heard about for the low price of $33 for a three course dinner ($15 for a two course lunch). Many of the eateries are locally owned and and operated; and there are all kinds of cuisine offered–from pizza to boar meat!
All of the participating restaurants donate a portion of their profits to these three organizations: Boys Grow, Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired and Cultivate KC.
Below is a list of the Brookside/Waldo spots offering special menus during the week. You can go to www.kcrestaurantweek.com to see individual restaurant menus, make reservations and see a complete list of all the places throughout the metro area offering the prix fix deals.
