Re: “Lawrence's Ladybird rewrites the rules for a great diner — starting with the pie

I also work across the street and eat there at least once a week. The breakfasts are very good. I have had almost everything on the menu. I highly recommend the hot roast beef plate, the egg salad sandwich, and the chicken fried steak. As for the pies, the peanut butter is fantastic. I am also a fan of the coconut cream and the London Fog which is a lavender cream pie flavored with lavender and Earl Gray Tea. Delicious. The service is friendly and the prices are awesome! #wewantpie

Re: “Reimagining the Plaza with savory local fare

I don't live in KC anymore, haven't since 2003-- but the Plaza was where I worked, lived and played. Now, whenever I am back, I rarely even go near the Plaza. It's just not even recognizable anymore. All chains, no boutique shops, no real fine dining. What a shame. But--- the only thing for certain in life is CHANGE (as they say). And, man... did it change! :(

Re: “Can a hit restaurant's kid sister survive growing pains?

I've only been to the new Lulu's once, and it was about 50/50 good and bad. My boyfriend and I love the original Lulu's.. (Lawrence anyone?!).. but the SW Blvd spot has gone downhill. My usual is the peanut noodles, and always has been (although I tried a new dish at the new Lulu's), and I can definitely say that the portion size has decreased by HALF from when they were still in their first SW Blvd spot. The last time I got noodles with chicken in them, the chicken tasted like it had been boiled two nights before and left out to dry up on the counter. LuLu's... what happened to you?!?!

Re: “Can a hit restaurant's kid sister survive growing pains?

I have found my last two trips to the crossroads location and my one (and only) trip to the bistro to be terrible experiences. My wife used to be their biggest fan but she won't go back to either also.

Eh, the Crossraods location ain't that great either so at least the brand is consistent.

Re: “Summit Grill & Bar replaces Waldo's Remedy with a better tonic

Sounds like they just jacked the menu from M&S Grill

Re: “Summit Grill & Bar replaces Waldo's Remedy with a better tonic

Sadly my second visit was not as good as my first. We went for Sunday morning brunch, but left without ordering. From the beginning I could tell that the upbeat personality it seemed to have just a few days ago was not present today... Even after finding out that Lauren, the great server we had at our previous visit, was not there, we pressed on, armed with our holiday coupon, hoping for the best. I was more than a little dismayed to be shown to a dirty table nestled between two full tables. The restaurant was half empty but they were piling everyone in one part of the restaurant. I don't get this scenario. Why do guests have to practically be sitting on top of each other and servers squeezing between tables/ against guests when there was plenty of space (and servers) available?? Although our server was very polite, I can only handle so much disappointment before I've had coffee(that was just sitting there, undrinkable, as I waited an eternity to NOT get sugar and cream). Maybe I was expecting too much... With the limited breakfast options in this area, I really wanted to like it here... We will try again, but not at brunch AND, I will know that if the host isn't smiling and none of the servers (including the bartender) bother to smile when we enter, I'll just turn around.

The food is great. I loved the chicken fried chicken. It is 10.00 and you will be stuffed. Gravy, taters, you bet babayyy!!!

I have eaten there 3 times, really good. The Pot Roast sliders kick butt too.

Re: “Summit Grill & Bar replaces Waldo's Remedy with a better tonic

We've been through this Skinny. It's not a chain. Since when is a two restaurant operation owned by two guys who live in KC a chain? I live in waking distance and have had many fantastic meals here.

Chains usually won't last in our little Waldo neighborhood.

Sounds good, if a bit pricey. Eighteen bucks for fish and chips?

Re: “Hungry bowlers can find a few good things at Pinstripes

We had a company party at this location a day after this review came out. The food was really top notch, as were the bar items we consumed many of. The service, however was hit and miss at best. The server, when he was around, was on point, but spent most of the night....somewhere else. I was also disappointed with the bowling aspect of the whole thing. I knew better than to expect that to be the focus, but when our 25 year old lane equipment broke down 3 times in 2 hours of bowling that put a chilly mood on our party. As did the horribly tended-to approaches, which were caked with dirt and sticky-stuff. If you're looking for quality bowling, look elsewhere but for a good all around option for corporate or large group entertainment without breaking the bank Pinstripes is a great choice.

Re: “At the American, Michael Corvino perfectly balances ambition and formality

Let's each of us save our nickels and try to go to the American once or twice a season - let's not have it go the way of The Golden Ox and find ourselves lamenting that we didn't support it!

Re: “Hungry bowlers can find a few good things at Pinstripes

When is Charles going to do a review of the sandwich section at Quik Trip? I'm on pins and needles waiting for his next culinary critique.

Re: “Hungry bowlers can find a few good things at Pinstripes

I've never had a bad plate (or cardboard container) of food at a bowling alley.

From patty melts to phillys, it's all good. I still shed a tear over Laurel Lanes in Raytown closing down. Thursdays were 'Mexican Mania' day, and you could get a bomb-ass burrito platter fit for a king.

It sounds like Pinstripes has taken the typical bowling alley menu to the next level.

Interesting.....

charlie fezzuzzararaa getting an a+ at fact checking as always. Still curious why he don't got the james beard award for culinary journalism at least 63 times.

Pinstripers on the plaza is most definitely still in existence
