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

Do they have waffle tacos?

Re: “OP's Masalas is reborn — with a much bigger menu

The worst food, service, and overall experience I had eating Indian. But don't take my word for it - http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/34/762760/restaurant/Kansas-City/Masalas-Authentic-Indian-Bistro-Overland-Park#posts or check out many of their one-starred YELP reviews.

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

I discovered Baked a couple of weeks ago and have been there twice (brunch and dinner) and take-out once (lunch and pastries). I love this kind of a restaurant: casual yet professional, high quality ingredients, innovative items, good desserts. The veggie burger on the lunch menu was wonderful (it is often my barometer for a restaurant - it can be boring and dry). Theirs was delicious and creative. Portabella mushroom with wonderfully flavored roasted butternut squash. The same veggies reappeared on the brunch veggie eggs Benedict. Both dishes excellent. The mussel appetizer broth was creamy with onion, capers and kalamata olives. I wanted to lick the bowl, but scooped as much as I could with their yummy bread. As I said, good food, nice vibe - a wonderful neighborhood addition.

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

That pot pie is definitely worth $20.... I got it last time I was there, a few weeks ago, and I burned my mouth because it was so delicious I couldn't wait for it to cool down

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.

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

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.

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

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