|A rainbow of culinary creativity in one week!|
Well, it was colorful, anyway, beginning with white, as in White Castle -- one of the Top Five Chain Restaurants that Jonathan Bender wished were here in Kansas City. As Pitch readers know, White Castle hamburgers -- invented in Wichita -- have come and gone from Kansas City twice in the last seven decades. Maybe the third time -- if there is one -- will be the charm.
Jonathan next drew the brown crayon from his creative palette: nut brown, that is. As in the The Battle of the Nut Brown Ales. Brown is also the color of crisp bacon, but not the shade of traditional crisp envelopes. Still, the combination of bacon and envelopes may be the next big thing. Brown is also the color of pecans!
And for a splash of turquoise blue, there's the new Shabby Hattie's Tea Room in Parkville!
