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.
Kansas City is famous for its barbecue, and this restaurant is one of the reasons why. Arthur Bryant's has been serving up slabs of slow cooked pork and beef since the 1930's. The small building is nothing fancy and resides in a somewhat disreputable part of town, but diners do not necessarily come for the ambiance. Nevertheless, Mr. Bryant has a couple of other locations around town. Casual dining is an understatement here, where guests line up, sometimes waiting up to 30 minutes just to order at the counter. Be sure to order a plate of greasy, delicious fries, and be prepared for huge portions.
