Re: “Rosso finds a brilliant new color for Italian

i've been there three times - once for dinner, once for lunch and once for drinks. Each time was great and i'd recommend it for sure, if not just to check out the rooftop view and have a couple of drinks. Can't wait to enjoy it when the weather gets nice.

Re: “Rosso finds a brilliant new color for Italian

Bunch of my neighbors have been here, said it was awful with "el garbagio" service. That means garbage in Italian...I think. Great article as always Charlie, you had me dying laughing the "entire" time, surprised you've only won 14 James Beard awards.

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

Be sure to ask a waitress if you can try one of their upside down tacos....they're amazing!

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

I agree with everyone's sentiment that why would you go there with so many other outstanding options for legit tacos, but let them be. There is a significant population that will never venture down to KCK or Independence Avenue for a taco. If they want to pay a surcharge for a street taco, that is their own doing. I have taken being that live south of 435 to San Antonio and have them literally freak out that they were going to die or get food poisoning. You would complain if those places got saturated with JOCOs wanting an urban experience.

Carl, we will have to agree to disagree on the matter of "noteworthy" and tacos.

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

All you geography buffs should cut Charles some slack. After visiting WHP this afternoon, I can certainly understand why people might mistake it for Gladstone - there's a huge water-tower right off the roadway.

We both wanted to try the Bangers & Mash as well as the Shepherd's Pie, so we got one of each and shared. Both were quite excellent. I've always had/made Shepherd's Pie with ground beef, but the ground lamb version is really tasty. Had almost an Indian-style spicing to it. And the bangers were the best I've had.

We shared one of the Sticky Toffee Puddings for dessert - good thing, since we still couldn't finish it. You definitely get your money's worth and won't leave hungry.

Kudos to Charles for pointing us to another great eatery. Julie's been wanting a good Brit place forever, and it's nice to finally have one even if it is on the outskirts of BFE.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Yes, Pete did close Peanches, last dinner was Dec 28. I was there and the menu was brilliant, as were the wine pairings. We'll miss you Pete.

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

Definitely worth a try. We went there last night. The owner was making the rounds to each table, chatting with the patrons.

Fish & chips were what you would expect. Burgers were smaller compared to what you'd get at an American chain, but maybe that's how they do it across the pond. The homemade ketchup and tartar sauce were a pleasant surprise.

Price-wise -- not cheap, but not expensive, either. I'd much rather spend my money at a local pub than a chain. We'll be back. Would make a great location for party.

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

I ate there shortly after it opened, but enough time for them to get the kinks worked out, or so I thought. The salsa had absolutely NO seasoning, tasted like they just opened a can of tomatoes and put them in the blender. The guacamole wasn't any better, absolutely no taste or seasoning. For 3 bucks a taco, I was disappointed with the amount of filling in them. The atmosphere was great, and I really liked their truck in Westport, but this place was a major disappointment. I haven't been back.

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

If you want some really good and authentic street style tacos head over to Bichelmeyer Meats in KCK off 7th St on Saturdays. Seriously the best tacos you’ll eat in Kansas City and they are only 2 bucks a piece. I suggest the Carnitas and Pastor, way better than the over hyped tacos at Taco Republic.

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

Fritos with the cheese dip? Come on man! The corn looks tasty though. Do they do call ins/take out? If it takes a while to get a table I doubt I'll ever go to their sit down restaurant when I can call in to OKJ across the street.

I think the expensive taco bubble is going to burst harder than the expensive burger trend. Tacos should never be more than $2 unless it's got some fresh seafood flown in.

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

I agree with the sentiment of the three previous commentors. Food is decent, but why would anyone want to spend $3.25 on a taco when you can go to any number of good street taco joints in town and eat them for a buck.

This place is WAY too costly! $3 for a taco? $.99 at El Torito every day, yo!

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

Great food, but a plate of three tacos can easily run ten bucks, and that's just three tacos - no rice or beans or other sides. Considering the tacos aren't very large, it wouldn't be out of the question to drop twenty or thirty bucks on a meal for one person with a hearty appetite. That's a little pricey for tacos if you ask me. TR should add some combination plates to the menu - everything currently is a la carte. They badly need some less expensive options.

The most important question -- will there be pies? Not shepherd's pie -- proper pies.

Re: “Sakura Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar: a blend of the glamorous and absurd

The food was okay but the service was awful. If you want to be overcharged and argued with then this is your place. The waitstaff could barely speak English. The bill was all messed up they didn't apply the gift certificate correctly. They charged a 18% gratuity on top of the total bill not the total bill minus the gift certificate. They took our receipt and wrote all over it and gave us three different amounts that were due and none were correct. The waitress stated that they always add 18% gratuity to all restaurant.com gift certificates even though it was not on the website nor disclosed. The waitress was rude and unable to give us a new receipt with a corrected amount she hand wrote the balance on an existing receipt which was still incorrect. Bill was 51.46 after a $25 gift certificate it was 38$ (you do the math) when we told her that there was an error in her math she became rude They then asked for somebody at another table who was eating dinner to help calculate the total of our bill. How absolutely embarrassing that a complete stranger needed to help them with the total. He then came to our table to apologize and tried to assist when he pointed out that our math was correct. He was pulled away from his own meal with his wife to do their job. We will never be going back to this restaurant. I would recommend no one going back unless you want to be over charged.
