Last minute visit to KC from NYC

My SO just had meetings scheduled for early next week so we decided to make a weekend out of it. The last time we visited was two years ago and the food was great: Bluebird, Succotash, 1924 Main, Harry;s, Jack Stack's and Christopher Elbow chocolates.

We're getting in on Friday and plan to have dinner around 9/9:30. We're staying at Hotel Phillips.

I put together a list of places that are in each neighborhood we'll be in (correct me if I'm wrong) that look like good options - plus we're going to LC's since we had Jack Stack's already:

Downtown/Crossroads: Bluebird Bistro (the only repeat visit from last time), Seven, Room 39, Sarah's, La Bodega, JP Wine Bar

P&L: Bristol Seafood, Souperman, Chefburger

the Plaza: Grand St. Cafe, the Mixx

Westport: The Drop, Blanc Burger & Bottles, Bluestem

I think we will eat at the bar at Bluestem on Friday night - seems like just the right place to kick off the weekend, though JP Wine Bar also looks good and is closer to the hotel.

Am I missing any others or should any drop off the list? My other questions are:

1) Where to have Sunday night dinner - we had an issue last time because we're foolish NYers that assume anyplace would be open on Sunday late for dinner. So I was thinking we'd plan ahead and go to either Bristol Seafood or La Bodega.

2) Is Blanc better than Chefburger? We're big fans of these kinds of burger bars - it seems from what I've read that Blanc might be better, plus the beer list is very extensive which is important to us. Frankly if we can figure out a way to try both, we'd do it.

Thanks very much for your input!
