Re: “Looking for that Far East slurping staple? Go west (a little) to Ramen Bowls

Sounds delicious! I wonder if they offer the wonderfully nutty soba (buckwheat noodles, or tea)? I'm totally addicted, can't find the dish or the tea anywhere. Anyway, I can't wait to taste their ramen. Thanks for the post.

Re: “Barrel 31's bar food grows up, not without awkwardness

I liked Barrel 31 the time I was there. But some of Carter's comments strike me wrong. The recipe given for the "classic dressing from the 1920s" sounds a lot like ranch to me. If you're going to serve fried chicken, white cream gravy is what I want. The duck gravy sounds like it might be good with, say, duck. Pork rinds can be done right. See http://www.chicagomag.com/video/Inside-Chicagos-Best-Restaurants/2014/Publican-Brian-Huston-pork-rinds/. To me the "hippie burger" sounds horrid. Why would anyone want to eat ground turkey, or any turkey for that matter? I suspect it's part of the misguided low fat thing that's responsible for much of this country's obesity. IMHO, chefs would do better to first do good food right. Then you can think about being "creative". I hope I'm wrong, but it sounds to me like another restaurant tending towards failure. -- And, I know Charles is a teetotaler, but he might mention that Barrel 31 is a whiskey bar, not that common around here.

Re: “Charisse keeps its part of downtown approachably fancy

The last two reviews before this were Johnson County restaurants.

For every ten restaurants he reviews in Missouri he does one in Kansas

Location, location, location....meaning that if this restaurant had opened in Johnson County it would have received a rotten review.

You should look through the archives. He's liked plenty of JoCo restaurants. Look at the rye review.

Re: “Charisse keeps its part of downtown approachably fancy

oh a classy spot for a change.......when will Charles give us a food review of another bowling alley ...... you know the Pitch is hurting when they advertise for employees with pop ups on their home page and Charles allowance has been reduced so much he has to do reviews at bowling alleys and cross roads dumps.....

Re: “Charisse keeps its part of downtown approachably fancy

We dined there last weekend and I totally agree with you. We had made a reservation and explained it was a special occasion. They tried to seat the two of us at the front of the restaurant crammed between two other parties. We insisted on being in a little more secluded are. We ordered a LOT of appetizers and salad, and you're right, - not enough beets in the beet salad, but everything else was delicious. We didn't get bread either, and the waiter was less than attentive. We had to ask to have water refilled, and had to put our used dished on the table next to us. He wasn't haughty, just maybe a little too busy. They had several large parties and I only counted 3 waitstaff, one of which was doubling as bartender. I'd probably go back, and it wasn't expensive, but it wasn't cheap, and the service should match the food. They are too close to Le Fou Frog not to have better service.

We all know Charles wouldn't write this same review if this restaurants' "location" was in JoCo

Re: “Il Lazzarone opens in the River Market

My wife and I ate here on Saturday afternoon.
Great environment.
Server was awesome. He gave a little background on the process/oven/ingredients.
Food was amazing. We each got a pizza($14 & $16) and a beer($5 each)
Pizzas were absolutely fantastic. Pies were cut into 4 pieces each and we had 3 left over slices (just as good cold the next morning).
It is a bit pricey but that comes with good food I guess.

I don't have very long for lunch. But, man I would love to eat at a place such as this.

Re: “Il Lazzarone opens in the River Market

If you're looking for authentic pizza from Naples this is it. Fans of Pizza Hut, Dominoes, etc. will be disappointed.

This has to be the best restaurant I've ever been to! Drop what you're doing now and go there!

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

This place is OK, but seems to suffer from the " this is the hot place to be" syndrome of having high priced average food, poor service and did I say high priced. We spent $75 on two games of bowling, 1/2 hour of bocce, a salad, a glass of wine and two beers. I can think of better ways to spend $75 than 2 hours of bowling/bocce and beer.

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

I've been to Arris' about 7 times already. The bad ass buffet is the bomb for lunch. My hot ass wife loves going there for dinner and can't get enough of the Gyro's! I read Tara's comment about the sausage pizza and she nailed it. Not a better sausage in this town. Don't take my white ass word for it, get your sorry ass in there and try it yourself. Go Greek!

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

Every time I've been in, it has been fantastic! I never like the big everything-tastes-the-same pizza places as much as the ones with real character (Arris, Shakespeare's, Waldo Pizza). Arris has a taste that is unique, and I'm a fan for sure! Glad to have such a good option come to KC!

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

I fell in love with Arris' when I lived in Springfield for a short time. I have been twice, including opening night, since it opened in Lenexa and I was not disappointed. It was exactly as I remember it in Springfield. I have never had better pizza!!
