Kansas City, Mo. Old Restaurants

kevin | Oct 7, 2008 05:03 PM

I happen to be reading a Calvin Trillin article in the New York Times and then later got sidetracked to a link to an article on Kansas City eats.

Anyhow, long story short our these restaurants still around:

Arthur Byrant's on Brooklyn Ave (is it at least owned by someone related to the Arthur or Charlie Bryant and if it is, is the quality still good for someone who has never been there before).

Jess and Jim's Steakhouse - still around?

Lamar's Donuts in an old gas station - is that around too?

Lastly, TJ Cinnamon's for cinmanon rolls still around too?

And even if most of these are closed where can I or should I go for food that hasn't changed for decades and resembles the foods of KC's past?

Thanks again. This is not my usual board. But I'm thinking of making a pit stop there, in any future trips.
