My boyfriend and I will be heading out to KC for 5 days (beginning August 21) and would really appreciate some food recommendations and musts. Here are a few guidelines, he's a vegetarian, non-mushroom eating but these days will have fish once in a while. So for him BBQs out. He's also pretty frugal although he will go out for one or two nicer meals because he knows its important to me.
I'm the foodie in the couple, I'd love to find a few local places that offer excellent flavors, casual, warm atmosphere and an authentically KC experience. We are actually considering relocating to KC so knowing its critical that we get a handle on the food situation.
I've heard of Bluebird Cafe and intend to try it. I'm also intrigued by BlueStem. What about the American Restaurant, and Lidia. Strong feelings?
Additionally please provide recommendations for cafes, lunch spots and more cheap eats.
Many thanks, I promise a report in return.
