Contemporary American
Like paint to a blank canvas, The Jacobson, or "The J" for regulars, transformed a 4,000-square foot warehouse into a modern restaurant and bar in the heart of the Crossroads Arts District.

A glance at The Jacobson's variety of contemporary American cuisine yields a collection for meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans. Much like an artist who draws inspiration from his or her own environment, diners in search of muse are encouraged to mix and match tastes when ordering appetizer & entrees from the Mingle & Center Stage sections of the menu.

The Jacobson offers a seasonal, scratch kitchen, and boasts one of Kansas City's more progressive bar programs, including handmade craft and barrel-aged cocktails, and The Jacobson's original flask service.
