Re: “Westside Local is finally as good as its fans have always insisted it was

I had one of my worst Kansas City restaurant experiences at Westside Local when it first opened. I have since become a big fan and it is always on my short list of great places to dine.

Last time I was there, the fries were frozen... Maybe that's changed?

We've been any number of times and have loved it every time.
You are sooooo right about those fries!

It has been one of my family's favorite places, especially when weather permits outside seating. The staff has always been gracious to us, from opening. I agree the fries are the best in Kansas City.

Re: “Is Kansas Town the Macaluso's successor that's finally built to last?

Seriously amazing food, plated with artistry. Doesn't quite mesh with the casual vibe, but we can live with the disconnect as it is just that good. We have been twice, and intend to be regulars. The service needs some professionalization (it is very friendly, and mostly efficient, however) and the chairs could use some cushions.

I walked by one night and it was filled with people. The food looks a little precious to me but I never liked anything that looked like it had been touched too much. Unless I am the one who made it.

That place is empty each time I walk by it. Makes me feel bad for the owners and staff.

We'll see if it can escape the Macaluso Curse.

Re: “Baked in Kansas City is almost too much of some good things

Idiots! Presentation is incredibly important for a restaurant. And Charles is right. Most of the cheese plates around here are incredibly uninspired. The old JJ's was a perfect example. The cheese and honey had possibilities, but a good cheese plate requires more than balsamic dribbled over it. It needs fresh fruit.

Re: “Baked in Kansas City is almost too much of some good things

I love our city's caricature of celebrated food and nightlife journalists. It pairs well with the overinflated sense of pretentious entitlement that is often extended to a familiar few within the local restaurant industry. It's a good thing Baked has their own parking lot across the street so Charles had somewhere to park his Waaambulance.

I did enjoy the image of a third grader assembling a cheese plate. I want to try that cheese plate; I bet dollars to doughnuts that it would be original and amazing.

I just loved this review and can't wait to try Baked out. The duck confit sandwich sounds incredible.

I have my share of stupid first world problems, but crying about the configuration of a cheese plate might take the cake.

My wife and I ate there for Valentine's Day and were very happy with the meal.

Re: “Four Seasons makes Sicilian pizza fit in Lenexa

I am so offended by the frivolous nature and tone of your article. You act like people are making up the concept of New York style pizza because it doesn't exist in Rome. That is just laughable. If you try to write about something you don't understand, you should write as an exploration, instead of acting like your opinion is the only one that matters. You seem to lack open-mindedness and a natural curiosity about life and the human condition that is essential to journalism.

Re: “What, you'd want to pay more
for sushi in Gladstone?

Since Jeff left. Yes he sold the restaurant to someone else. They have been changing the rolls. The service in now at a very low point. We (a party of 7) went in for dinner. It was empty. Waited for 15 minutes still had no water or even a "hello". We got up and went to Moonlight in Liberty.

Re: “Seva Cuisine of India marries fuss and flavor

Additional comment----Soon after Swagat was opened our son came home from college in Springfield, Missouri and lamented that Springfield had NO Indian restaurants. Soon the brother of Dave, who owned Swagat, opened up Gem of India which is still going strong. You may want to try them out if you are traveling in that area.

Re: “Seva Cuisine of India marries fuss and flavor

Interesting review of one of my three favorite Indian Restaurants. (Now all conveniently located north of the river) There is one correction that needed to be made. You did not see 3 little girls in one of the back booth. Gurdev and Kuldip have two children, a girl and a boy and the other little girl was their cousin. Gurdevs son has long hair worn in a traditional top knot and you probably mistook him for a girl. My husband is a commercial artist and sign maker and after years of driving from the Northland to Kansas for Indian food we began browbeating the current owner of Swagat to please bring Indian food to the Northland. One day he called us and asked us to check out a location in a strip mall adjacent to a field that would soon become Zona Rosa. And so began Indian Food in the Northland. Swagat was first and soon relocated to Zona Rosa, Seva is located on the west side of I35 near Liberty and Taj Mahal relocated from Independence to Liberty on 291. Finding it difficult to sometimes know what we were eating, my husband made signs to accompany the dishes on the buffet. These included the names and basic ingredients of the dish. He made these same buffet tags for Seva and also Taj Mahal in Liberty. I think they set these establishments apart from many other Indian places and make the transition to Indian food easier for "newbies". We feel truly blessed to have all three of these Indian delights in our "neighborhood". Each has it's own atmosphere and specialty dish and none taste exactly the same. Swagat has now added a market and bizarre next door to their place in Zona Rosa so many are now making Indian food at home.
