Went to Zócalo for a pre-Valentine’s Day weekend date. The weather was iffy but there was still an almost full dining area. Our waiter was spectacular. There was a small issue with the appetizer. He informed us and offered us several options. We opted to have the app with our entrees and when the check came it had been taken off. The food and drinks choices have some interesting ingredients and everything we ordered had a great blend of familiar and unexpected flavors. A very enjoyable dinner More

Discover Plaza

Brookside is a quieter area of Kansas City, but don't overlook it if you want to try some incredible meals from all around the world. For example, you'll find many Italian restaurants in the area that serve delicious lasagna Bolognese and other classics. There are also plenty of sushi joints for residents and visitors who just can't get enough of this popular dish. Gyro fans will be in luck too because Greek restaurants are popular places to grab a quick bite. For those who want something a little more traditional, there are great barbecue stops that serve pulled pork dishes. Make sure to stop at one of the many bakeries in the area as Brookside and Kansas City are renowned for having some of the best cinnamon rolls in the nation.
