American Slang Modern Brasserie is a totally unexpected fun, vibrant, modern and approachable 200-seat restaurant and 35-seat bar that has been surprising and delighting savvy diners as well as discerning Kansas City ‘foodies’ since summer, 2017. Dramatically designed dining and bar spaces are ‘fresh’ by day and ‘minimalist’ by night, this is where ‘local’ collides with ‘European’ in a compelling and engaging way. Plus there are flexible private dining areas available for special occasions and events from 20 – 100. Seasonal outdoor seating offers some of the best Country Club Plaza views around.

To make Afternoon Tea reservations, guests may call 816-303-2945; only 48 hours notice is required.

    At 6:30 on a Saturday night, they were out of half the things we asked for but we weren’t even told until they delivered what they did have to our table. When we asked for substitute dishes, they were out of those too. The dishes we got were fine, not great. The room is loud and bare and menus are paper. I had to ask for a glass for my beverage (brought the bottle to the table) and plates for our shared appetizers. Waiter was slow and inattentive. With the infinite options on the Plaza across the street, this is NOT the place to dine.

    The staff was nice and accommodating but the food at the Easter buffet was just okay. There weren’t many people there so the food wasn’t being refreshed often and it wasn’t the freshest quality. The $70 brunch price seemed a bit high for just okay food.

    Can’t say enough about our experience here…they were due to close 30min after our reservation but was still very accommodating and the server was very pleasant

    This place is such a gem and apparently a well kept secret! Great view of the plaza and food was delicious!

    I have literally NEVER encountered worse service at a restaurant. We were there an hour in advance for organized brunch. There were no table settings, no silverware, no champagne glasses with 6 bottles ordered in advance. The "manager" couldn't care less...the server was terrible and hapless. We waited 90 minutes for food with NO ONE ELSE in entire restaurant. The meals were delivered in some cases 30 minutes apart to one table. Inexcusable. One good note...my compliments to the chef. The food was extraordinary. It's sad when servers can spoil an entire experience...and they seriously were so cavalier and flippant...i should not have tipped a penny, but I gave 20% hoping the chef benefited.

    The area around the fireplace is beautiful. The staff allowed us to eat our meal there which made for a good experience. The restaurant area looks like a cafeteria and is extremely noisy. Also, The restaurant was unable to make one of our appetizers and substituted a less expensive item. They told us they were giving us that substitute item at no cost but instead charged us for the more expensive one that they didn’t serve us. By the time we got our bill and noticed the mistake, it was too much trouble to ask them to correct it. To be fair, this was a Friday evening and they were very busy.

    The space is great and overlooks a great view of the plaza! Food was good as well but it was awkwardly quiet in there and practically empty

    Very disappointed. Tables so close you could not get around without disturbing others. Food was cold to slightly warm. Desserts table was awful- pies in aluminum holders, looked like they just came from Price Chopper, runny and and blah! Omelette s were only option that met expectations. The Intercontinentals standards were not even close to average -- although the price was definitely in keeping with the location!!

    The reservation was made on Opentable with the idea that we could order off the regular menu because for the reservation it had me select regular menu. Then we show up - no one greets us beyond the host who seated us. Someone comes up and says you can go to the buffet. No one took our drink order or anything. We were finally told that we have to eat the Mother’s Day Brunch despite the fact that we were able to make the reservation for the regular menu. The price of the brunch was beyond what we wanted to spend so we were put in a predicament about where to eat on a extremely busy day in the restaurant industry. We really wish it was a better experience.
