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.....

Re: “Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar finally made an oyster eater out of me

To Garzone; Please stay away. Go to single location places that are poorly run and failing and eat bad food - you deserve it.

Re: “Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar finally made an oyster eater out of me

I won't step foot in this place because of the prices and it's a chain. I support locally owned restaurants. The plaza is full of chains now. Sad.

Cooked is fine. Raw looks too much like somebody blew their nose into the shell for me to ever feel completely comfortable eating it.

Re: “Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar finally made an oyster eater out of me

Yeah, most readers of the Pitch won't go near this place due to its super high prices. I would rather read a review of City Fish or Jumpin' Catfish. I'm not poor but not rich either.

Re: “Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar finally made an oyster eater out of me

Glad you liked those oysters. I can understand why people are squeamish at first; Cold, slimy (in appearance) and definitely a whole animal and I understand most folks like their animal based food to look nothing like an actual animal. But gosh, they are like eating the sea, in a good way. Nothing like them, and worth every penny of the high price. If only I had an income that would support eating them. It's easy to spend $100 if the main dish is oyster.

I have had almost everything on the menu by now (I work across the street) and I have yet to be disappointed. Everything is DELICIOUS and served with a smile. The pie is AMAZING. #wewantpie

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

The American is a KC treasure. My Dad came to visit from NY. He has eaten in every 4 star restaurant in NY and in his opinion, the American could stand up to most of them.

Re: “At Fud, Heidi Van Pelt-Belle offers vegan fun

PS, they still only accept cash (and checks). I respect that, slow as it may be (screw bank fees). Servers do come to the table . . . ours was OK . . . smiley but a little slappy with the silverware . . . is not having ice in the water a thing? Sure we were a big party, but she forgot someone's order (they were written down) and never apologized or communicated with one of the chefs/ expediters who said that meal would be comped (so that didn't happen).
We did not expect everyone's meal to come out at the same time from that tiny kitchen, so the coordination was impressive. Also, we tried to call ahead to alert of "large party coming" (12), but all we got several times was voice mail announcing their being closed for INDEPENDENCE DAY : ) On Nov. 5, 3014. Yes, I'd go back. Even though the menu is too huge now and you have to get saturated with kitchen smells. Great beverage menu. I really don't know how Heidi gets so much variety out of that TINY kitchen. Amazing. Love that I can get FÜD sandwiches at Nature's Own, too.

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

Chef Corvino has created some of my favorite dishes this year, and has inspired another favorite...be sure to order The Corvino when dining at Novel. You will not be disappointed. It is luxury. Pure luxury.

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

I went for a wedding and the onion bisque was literally one of the best things I've ever ingested. The rest of the meal was exquisite, and I cannot wait for my next meal there. Now if they can only hire Bluestem's designer....
