KC Restaurant Week starts tomorrow (Friday, Jan 20, 2012) and I was wondering how many of you are planning on taking part. For those who are unfamiliar, KCRW supports Harvesters Food Bank. More than 120 restaurants all over the city offer three- or four-course dinners for a fixed price of $30, and two- or three-course lunches for $15. It lasts 10 days, ending Sunday, Jan 29.
Where are you planning to go? Which meals are you most looking forward to?
I am finally taking the opportunity to eat at Capitol Grille, The American Restaurant, and JULIAN (all are a first time for me). I also have reservations at JJ's, Lidia's, Gram & Dun, 801 Chophouse, Bristol Grill, and Fogo de Chao (not all for dinner). Yeah, it will be a big week.
There are many other great restaurants on the list. In some cases they are offering menus that don't differ from the rest of the year, for about the same price. Extra Virgin, for example (one of my favorite Kansas City restaurants) is presenting dishes from their regular menu at not much of a discount.
What restaurants have you found that are offering particularly unusual or interesting meals?
