Webster House

1644 Wyandotte | 816-221-4713

The second-floor lounge at the Webster House, known as the Library, isn't very large. If you want to squeeze in for the 90-minute happy hour here — offered from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday — you'd better arrive as close to 4:30 as possible. The potent beverages are excellent, of course, but the real draw is executive chef Matthew Arnold's menu of hearty small plates, including a delicious $7 steak burger that might be the best in the city. Arnold, a relatively recent addition to Webster House, has kept two of former chef Charles d'Ablaing's creations: fried green tomatoes and the shrimp with grits. The catch: He changed the recipes completely. "We now fly in our grits from North Carolina," Arnold says. It's easy to put together a satisfying and inexpensive meal from the seven offerings, or just sit back with your martini and nibble on house-made garlic potato chips and fresh caramel corn.
