Peppercorn Duck Club Hyatt Regency Crown Center 2345 McGee Street 816-435-4199
After two decades, the Peppercorn Duck Club has lost a little of its glamour but none of its style. It's high-gloss fancy, right down to the fresh rose given to each female patron, the personalized matchbooks, and the seriously attentive service. So if it's time to toss the latest trendy (and disappointing) diet plan to the wind, come here to celebrate with a fat roasted duckling, its succulent meat covered with a crispy, crackly crust and a dollop of tart orange sauce, and a good bottle of champagne. Then go for the gusto at the eye-popping Ultra Chocolatta Dessert Bar, where it's impossible not to overindulge on all kinds of chocolate sweets and pastries. You'll be fatter, but so much happier.
