Many diners come just to see how New York restaurateur Lidia Bastianich has transformed the place. The service is excellent and the Northern Italian entrees, including Lidia's Pasta Tasting, a sample of three seasonal pasta dishes, are mouthwatering. Its charm and elegant atmosphere add an element of romance to an already top-notch setup.

This kitchen at this popular French restaurant has the ability to transform a typical French meal into a long, lasting memory. The atmosphere in the cozy dining room and outside on the bright terrace transports diners to the South of France, where outstanding food, an awesome wine list and stellar service are just as good in the Côte d'Azur. On those cold Midwest winter days, they have a private, heated tent available to comfortably accommodate diners. The dinner menu changes nightly, but some permanent examples of what you may find include Escargot in butter and garlic, the classic Steak au Poivre, Filet Mignon stuffed with Lobster and a vibrant Bouillabaisse.
This restaurant is the Kansas City edition based on the original one in Providence, R.I. The original still stands, yet now the conglomerate Darden Restaurants owns it along with many others across the U.S. Here they serve an array of classic steakhouse dishes accompanied with all the sides and of course, seafood. To begin, try the Steak Tartare with the Truffled Egg or the Lobster and Crab Cakes, followed by the North Atlantic Twin Lobster or Kona Crusted Dry Aged Sirloin with Caramelized Shallot Butter as your entree. For dessert, the divine Chocolate Hazelnut Cake and Creme Brulée are classics that never disappoint.
This Italian eatery is consistently rated as one of the best places to try plates from 'the Boot' not only by local critics, but by international ones like Zagat and Bon Appetit as well. The menu is extremely simple and succinct, where the kitchen blends two or three items at best. This simplicity is marked with primi piatti (small plates) such as Shrimp over Artichokes, Bruschetta with olives and capers and a Caprese salad made with fresh 'Bufala di Mozzarella'. For dinner, their succulent Veal Piccata served with melt-in-your-mouth rosemary garlic mashed potatoes is one of their best options. The wine list is also extensive, where you will find rotating varietals from Italy and beyond, and for dessert, you will find favorites like Tiramisù and Spumoni.
