If I weren't from KC (now living in NYC), I'd never know that there is anything decent to eat there that isn't BBQ or Stroud's fried chicken. I've just spent a good part of the day looking for recommendations for places to take my mother-in-law for dinner and/or a worthwhile Mexican dive to indulge my cravings for the 4 days that I will be visiting. Never did I see Aixois or Andres mentioned...or a good Chinese restaurant. Wha????
