In the 2002 movie Frida, the artist Diego Rivera, portrayed by Alfred Molina, announces that "Sex is like pissing. People take it much too seriously."
You might be able to say the same thing about dining. Some people take this foodie thing very, very seriously, but when all is said and done, a hamburger is a hamburger and a cup of tortilla soup is nothing more than a cup of tortilla soup. Neither concludes with anything close to orgasm, although indigestion is possible.
That being said, there's nothing very serious about the food - or anything else - at Diego's Bar & Grill in Gladstone (6024 N.E. Antioch Road, 816-454-0606), the latest creation of restaurateur Ivan Marquez, best-known for his two Frida's restaurants in Overland Park. Marquez took over the former Tanner's location last summer and has created a venue that's not quite a neighborhood saloon or a destination restaurant and that has a menu that's so over-the-map, you almost need a GPS device to understand it.
Unlike Frida's - both the sit-down and fast-casual locations - Diego's Bar & Grill doesn't offer a creative spin on classic Spanish and Mexican dishes, but is a strange amalgamation of Americanized ethnic dishes: pizza, fish and chips, spaghetti Bolognese, chile verde pork, Greek salad, Buffalo chicken wings - and beef sliders topped with gouda cheese.
The only thing missing from this menu so far is chow mein.
