I have something to share with you.
I have been to Kansas City so many times for work and almost always have a great food experience. And there is one restaurant that will remain on my favorites list!
My favorite spot – I can visit the original location at a gas station, eat great barbeque and be in and out within 30 minutes. Pulled pork and coleslaw on a sandwich – AWESOME!!!
Gram & Dun
It’s been a few years since I have been here but the food is always good, it’s an easy walk from the hotels on the plaza and they are on OpenTable. After a crazy rain storm that
forced allowed me to get some work done at the hotel, I walked to the restaurant with iPad in hand and got a high top table in the bar. A glass of wine with the double cut breaded pork chop, creamed brussels sprouts with house-smoked bacon – my happy dance took place on the way home!
I admit, I didn’t love this restaurant but I think they had an off day. I had the lunch special – salad and pasta (and added a meatball ). The caesar salad needed to be chilled – it was as if they plated it and left it sitting on the line while they waited for the hot items. As for the pasta, should have been cooked a minute or so longer to be perfect. The flavors were good and I would return but there are too many other great spots to try.
Residence Inn Kansas City Country Club Plaza
I stay here quite often IF I cannot get a room at The Raphael Hotel. It’s super convenient to walk to many of my appointments and a block off the plaza. It’s quiet and clean and they have a good amount of parking. One night, Marriott points…all is good.
