More trophies should feature pigs.
  • More trophies should feature pigs.
The Pitch's Best Of edition is on newsstands and the Internet today. There's Best Food, Best Drink and all the necessary components for the Best BBQ Plate. When we start to dive into specifics, there are Best Place to Meet the People Who Grow Your Food and Best Supermarket. The results of the Readers' Choice poll are included in this issue.

This here is what the Internet calls an open thread — you're free to weigh in on our selections and share your thoughts about the best dining and drinking in KC. As always, keep it civil (personal attacks will be deleted) and try to keep it on target. Otherwise, let's see what you think of this year's winners.

You don't have to wear white to read this year's Food & Drink section of the annual "Best of Kansas City" issue, but there is something old, something new, something borrowed (an idea, anyway) and something blue in its pages.

Lots of new restaurants are honored this year, including the vibrant Füd (Best Vegetarian Food), Frida's Contemporary Mexican Cuisine as Best Mexican Restaurant and Paparico's Mexican Restaurant as Best Mexican breakfast.

Best of Kansas City: Even the best new restaurants die young

Posted By on Tue, Oct 5, 2010 at 12:15 PM

Extra Virgin was the critic's choice in 2009.

​On the eve of The Pitch's 2010 "Best of Kansas City" issue, we thought it would be entertaining and revealing to take a backward glance at some of our past winners. Even the winners that ultimately became, well, losers.

For the past decade, The Pitch has singled out one venue each year as Best New Restaurant. Last year's winner in this category, Extra-Virgin -- the creation of chef Michael Smith and his wife, Nancy -- was a slam-dunk. It's still one of the most popular dining venues in the Crossroads.

Not all of our selections since 2000 have been so successful, alas.

Best of Kansas City: 10 years of the smokin' best barbecue

Fiorella's Jack Stack is still a contender
On the eve of The Pitch's 2010 "Best of Kansas City" issue next week, we thought it would be entertaining and revealing to take a backward glance at some of our past winners. Who's still on top? Which restaurants and bakeries had their 15 minutes of fame and are barely remembered today?

As Kansas City's signature dish, barbecue has been, of course, a popular feature of our yearly "Best of Kansas City" issue. And while we've frequently honored the iconic smoke shacks -- Arthur Bryant's, Gates Barbecue, Rosedale Barbecue and others -- the celebratory issue is also a good place to give kudos to newer contenders.

On the eve of The Pitch's 2010 "Best of Kansas City" issue next

week, we thought it would be entertaining and revealing to take a

backward glance at some of our past winners. Who's still on top? Which

restaurants and bakeries had their 15 minutes of fame and are barely

remembered today?



Sweets -- fancy desserts, breakfast pastries, humble pies -- have always been a tradition in our "Best of Kansas City" issues. Looking back at past award winners, though, it's sad to see that at least a couple of bakeries didn't make it through the last decade.

Tio was tops in 2009
On the eve of The Pitch's 2010 "Best of Kansas City" issue next week, we thought it would be entertaining and revealing to take a backward glance at some of our past winners. Who's still on top? Which restaurants had their 15 minutes of fame and are barely remembered today?

For over a decade we've honored, in the pages of the "Best of Kansas City" issue, the men and women who really make a restaurant work: the chefs, bartenders, waiters and waitresses. Last year's nod for "Chef of the Year" went to Celina Tio, who had just opened her Brookside bistro, Julian.
