The January doldrums are here...to me, this can be the most boring month of the year. The weather is cold and gloomy, no special events, not much on the market to sell. However, there is Restaurant Week to look forward to!
Kansas City Restaurant Week is a benefit for the Kansas City Community Garden organization. Participating restaurants donate a portion of the profits to this group that helps grow food in low income neighborhoods via vacant lots and common grounds. You can enjoy specially priced menus ($15 for lunch and $33 for dinner) at many eateries around the city. A full list of restaurants and menus are available at the website. Some of the popular, locally owned dining spots include Aixois, Room 39, Gram and Dun, Jack Stack BBQ, and Red Door Grill.
Many spots fill up fast so make reservations early!
