Re: “Blvd Tavern rocks Korean wings, British fish and a New York sandwich

Derek's a great chef that has earned his place in the KC culinary scene. Nice work Nacey's!

Re: “Blvd Tavern rocks Korean wings, British fish and a New York sandwich

You haven't had magnificent shrimp and grits until you have the ones from here--the stone-cut grits are the perfect cheesiness, and the shrimp juicy and tail-less, a step up in my mind. Taste perfection is the wonderful sauce which includes chunks of a thick bacon--mouth watering just to think of it!

I'll second the praise on those wings, had them for the first time a couple weeks ago and have been craving them like crazy ever since. So so good.

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

Below average pizza & gyros. Very nice decor. Will make a nice spot for whoever comes after they close.

Re: “Char Bar Smoked Meats & Amusements is killing it in Westport

Be weary of the Burnt End Benny. It may forever change the way you brunch and create new expectations. It's pretty similar to crack, but you know, legal and stuff.

Sadly, the market didn't support Chaz 325 and it has now been shuttered. Rats.

Re: “Alex Pope's Local Pig offers Westport a choice cut

I had probably my worst restaurant experience there in April. It took forever for my party of 3 to get a seat in a room of 3 empty 4 tops, I used to work in service and I get that is sometimes a necessity so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. After we were seated our waiter, who was behind the bar visibly chugging several Red Bulls and a sweaty mess, completely forgot about us, our drinks took almost 45 minutes to come out because they were never rung in. The food was god awful- bland and cold- when we walked out people in the line to get in asked us what we thought, to which we responded "it was awful"...they thought we were joking and stayed in line.

I wish they kept the pork tenderloin sandwich from the old Preservation Market menu, it was literally the best sandwich I'd ever had.

abe - blasphemer - anyone who disagrees with Charlie Feruzski's reviews and opinions of one of his "favs" will get his ip address blocked and flamed by Slobby Dave and that goof that looks like Wayne Newton's evil twin. Good luck with being honest on the Pitch website!

Twas Delicious. There is a pickle cocktail that I have to get now every single time. Can't go wrong with sips and apps. Go charcuterie plate!

Re: “Alex Pope's Local Pig offers Westport a choice cut

I would like to try this place again, I just hope whomever was cooking for them in February is gone because my first 2 experiences here were awful.

First time I got the cheesesteak mac and cheese. It was cooked through, but ice cold. It was as if they had it in the fridge and didn't bother warming it up before serving.

Second time, my burger was raw. Not medium rare, or rare (which is BS anyways since all ground beef should be cooked to 160F). It was straight up raw. The waitress was gagging at sight of it. Unfortunately they didn't bother to fix me a new one after showing her, they just took it off the bill.

I know you all just consider me a Pitch comment section troll, but this place really could have been something special considering how excellent Local Pig East Bottoms and Pigwich are. I hope they've got some better line cooks since February. Instead it was the worst 2 dining out experiences I've had in KC. Maybe all the focus was being put towards Cleaver and Cork

Re: “Jimmy Frantze's new J.J.'s is just that — an original

I could have sworn it was called J.J. Malane's-- or J.J.Malang's--- was it really Malones? I worked there for a few months in the early 80's, too. Wow. My brain must really be fading, huh? I live in Santa Fe, NM now and haven't been in J.J's for at least 18-20 years, but recognized the proprietor, Jimmy Frantze, last night in town here-- while dining out on Canyon Rd. He sure seems like a friendly guy. You almost can't help but like him (earring and all). Always has a genuine look of happiness in his eyes-- and smile ;)

Re: “Looking for that Far East slurping staple? Go west (a little) to Ramen Bowls

When will Charles do a review of the salad bar and soup selections at Cosentino's downtown? Until he tells me his opinion I just won't be able to know what to select. I'm anxiously waiting for him to review a can of Campbell's tomato soup.

Re: “Looking for that Far East slurping staple? Go west (a little) to Ramen Bowls

Mr. Feruzza has evolved over the years into about the only real critic writing about any medium in this area. His reviews always instruct and always give a straightforward evaluation of the subject. I wish we had more fine, well written reviews for other subjects in this city, whether through Pitch, Star, or other publications.

Re: “Looking for that Far East slurping staple? Go west (a little) to Ramen Bowls

We don't have soba noodles, or tea but the tonkatsu noodles and miso noodles are just as addictive. I've worked there for about 8 months and I still can't wait to sit down to a bowl of pork broth, miso noodles, and a couple slices of the seared pork belly most days.

Sounds delicious! I wonder if they offer the wonderfully nutty soba (buckwheat noodles, or tea)? I'm totally addicted, can't find the dish or the tea anywhere. Anyway, I can't wait to taste their ramen. Thanks for the post.
