Restaurant Week, the popular fundraising event presented by US Foods, has been filling 150 local restaurants over the last seven days and continues through Sunday, January 25. There's an impressive list of participating restaurants offering prix fixe menus for lunch or dinner, or both.
This year's Restaurant Week has three charitable beneficiaries: BoysGrow, the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired, and Cultivate Kansas City. The Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation and the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association Education Foundation will receive a portion of the proceeds as well.
Each participating restaurant offers a special, multicourse lunch menu (priced at $15) and/or a $33 dinner menu. Reservations are highly recommended.
Last week, when Restaurant Week started, we posted this list
of enticing possibilities. Some of our other favorite local restaurants serving up special dishes for the next four nights include the following.
(435 Westport Road, 816-389-4180) is offering a two-course lunch menu (a choice of Boulevard Tank 7 cheese soup, cheesy ancho corn dip or zucchini-potato latkes and, for the entree course, a choice of 8-hour corned beef hash, an eggplant muffuletta or a Smokestack burger). There are three choices on the dinner menu, with a first-course starter (choice of house-made ricotta with tomato jam and sourdough toast points, cheesy ancho corn dip or zucchini-potato latkes), second-course entree (choice of Kobe burger, lobster risotto, jackfruit tamales or BBQ Creekstone short rib). The dessert choices are pie of the day and brioche bread pudding.
