Seafood | Kansas City, Kansas City, MO

Celebrating the simple one year dating anniversary with my boyfriend was made extra special by the amazing "extras", food and service (from the valet to the manager dropping by our table). I love your restaurant and do recommend this to friends and coworkers (regardless of celebrating or simply breaking bread together). Wonderful place to dine on the Plaza in Kansas City! More

Discover Kansas City, MO

Kansas City, Missouri, is home to some great restaurants featuring local cuisine and global flavors. The city is home to not only a wide array of classic American restaurants but also diverse international cuisines, including Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Greek, Japanese and more. For a hearty breakfast, try a specialty, the Garden of Eden frittata. This dish is comprised of cheddar cheese, potatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, onions and roasted red peppers and is topped with spicy salsa and basil. If you're in the mood for a quick but delicious lunch, grab a plate of hickory smoked baby back ribs. Served alongside classic sides such as house cut fries and creamy cole slaw, this is another local favorite.
