The Reserve at the Ambassador Hotel

1111 Grand | 816-298-7700

Let's get real. There will never again be a great old-fashioned hotel coffee shop in Kansas City like the long-gone Alameda Plaza's Pam Pam Room. There will never be a supper club like the old Muehlebach Hotel's Terrace Grill. Gone, like Tom Pendergast or Count Basie. But the combination cocktail lounge and dining room in the new Ambassador Hotel evokes not only a different time and place but also a different style of dining. Chef Geoffrey van Glabeek's menus — the room serves three meals as well as a limited late-night selection — convey a sense of fun and style rarely seen in modern hotels. There's something old-school decadent and 21st-century outrageous about eating sliders and lobster corn dogs in such a cool, dimly lighted, sophisticated setting.
