Leawood’s Gaslight Grill is a large, sprawling expanse of white tablecloths, private party rooms, and a seemingly endless array of wine shelves housing more than 180 varieties of wine. The horseshoe-shaped granite bar surrounds a towering shelf of high-end liquors and wines, and unique beers such as Hobgoblin English Ale are on the tap. The fireplace next to the bar offers a cozy atmosphere, and menu items include everything from traditional fare (baby back ribs, fish and chips) to higher end cuisine (osso buco, ahi tuna). Daily drink and dinner specials are available, including half off any wine under $60, half off champagne drinks, and half-priced bar bites during the week.

Restaurant Details

This restaurant’s owner Dick Hawk used to own a hotel at Lake of the Ozarks, and when he moved to Kansas City he brought the jazz band with him. Seven-night-a-week jazz is one of the attractions at this “grill,” which isn’t as casual as the name suggests. The main barrel-vaulted dining room boasts black leatherette banquettes and semi-formal service. The fare here, created by chef Eddie Djilali, is supposedly “American contemporary with a European twist.” That means the menu has steak and spuds, pasta and risotto – and “English fish and chips.” There’s something irresistibly appealing about this place, if only because it tries so hard to live up to its affectations as a 1940s jazz club steakhouse. With a European twist. — Charles Ferruzza
