Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Although the reviewer's normal condescending tone has been directed to Gladstone this time, 102nd and North Oak isn't really anywhere near Gladstone. Regardless of location, I look forward to trying this NORTHLAND restaurant.

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Not only is In-A-tub and Hayes not in Gladstone; neither is China One. Charles, I love your writing style but take some time and brush up on your local geography. If you need a geo-fact checker let me know.

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

One thing I also forgot to mention. There is a law in Britain that when you order a "pint" it must be just that - a full 16 ounces of beer. And when you go into the White Horse Pub and order "a pint", that is what you get -- a full PINT!

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

The reviewer forgot to mention the excellent selection of beers on tap. In addition to several Boulevard brews the White Horse also offers Guinness Stout, Bass Ale, Strongbow Hard Cider and (my favorite) Boddington's Ale.

And be sure to order a Scotch Egg! They are truly excellent.

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

neither In-A-Tub nor Hayes Hamburgers are in Gladstone. the restaurant in question and the two aforementioned dives are all well within the boundaries of KCMO North and not REALLY on the periphery of Glastone at all.

Re: “Affare brings European flavor to the Crossroads

December 26,2013. Not bad for KC which is impossible to ever be chic enough for chef owned restaurants to survive in let alone survive.By 9:30p.m. this place with a fab cocktail lounges folds and you are left feeling like a guest who has worn out their welcome. Food misses the mark and left me wishing it was as chic and sophisticated as I hoped when I walked in. Not so much.Kansas City continues to be too small to be chic and sophisticated and too big to be charming.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Tellers definitely did not go "unlamented"... I miss my Wednesday wine flights and salmon penne in the summer! Also, the staff sneaking us up on the roof for a birds-eye view of the crowd after a big win. I'm happy for Merchants though, they have good food and good people waiting on you

Re: “Hamburger Mary's figures Kansas City's ready for big gay burgers

My partner and I went to Hambuger Marys on 12/28/13 for lunch. It has been 2 years since we had been there. We decided to give this establishment another chance. Our experience in the past was not good. Unfortunately on 12/28/13 our experience was that of utter disgust.

There were 2 tables already seated and served when we were seated. That makes a total of 3 tables of patrons. Not to busy at all. My partners ice-tea was served without ice ($2.50). My draw of beer was warm with no frosted glass ($4.50). We ordered our food and waited and waited and waited. No other customers came in. Remember only 3 tables of patrons. Nearly 30 minutes later our food comes out. We ordered the Hambugers. The buns were not grilled as they should be. They were cold. My onion rings had a hint of heat that lasted about 30 seconds. My partners fries were served room temperature. It was a disaster!

Who ever owns this establishment apparently does not have a restaurant focus. Maybe you should just have a night club and give up on the food part. It is pathetic.
We will not be back and one further comment. The bill came to $34.52 something like that, I gave $40.00 to our server who said he will return with the change. Instead of the change and a $5.00 doller bill he came back with the change and $1.00 bill. I advised him I gave him 2 - 20 dollar bills, and that my change should be the change and a $5.00 bill. He apologized and got me the $5.00 bill. He said the $1.00 was in the $5.00 bill slot in the register. Simple mistake or trying to grab more money from the patron? Your guess is as good as mine.

I did leave the $5.00 for the tip.

Hell yeah, nothing ranks higher on my list of "shit I absolutely REQUIRE from a restaurant" than the ability to bring my goddamn dog to it.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

In my visits to KC last year while planning and installing an art exhibit, I found The Corner Restaurant to be great, the food consistent, tasty, portions abundant, and price fair for the quality. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Mostly I found the menu to be interesting and creative, a cool feat for breakfast and lunch.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Does anyone know if Josh Eans at Happy Gillis is planning on extending its hours?
As for the Woodsweather II diner and nightclub on Vivion Road, good riddance. They acted like they were doing you a favor by letting you eat their lousy food.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Restaurants come and go. Mainly they go when the customers leave and if you're one of the last few to eat at such a place you understand why everyone stopped eating there. Kitchens that prepare from scratch should always be the better places to eat if one is willing to pay the extra cost. But in todays fast food world and cost cutting operations those places have a harder time keeping the doors open and it don't take much to cause them to close. Ahhhh to go back to before the mid 80's when the area had many fine dinning places and the owners knew your name, came by the table to greet you after you was seated and returned when you was done to inquire about you and your dinner. That's how it use to be done, you was made to feel good and the food as well was good. You don't get that at Capitol Grille.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Personally the "New Corner" was a large dispointment to me.. I found it cold and impersonal .. And the food expenseive for the buck not a great value. Trying to impress folks and just comes off fake and phony .

What did happen to Milbourn's? One day they were open and just as quick, they were gone with no notice, nothing.
