"Where should we eat tonight?"  How often do you hear this questions  It's easy to fall back to those familiar locations close to home, with food and service you know. Break out of the rut!  Kansas City Restaurant Week is almost here!


restaurant week

KC Restaurant Week (January 11-20, 2019) is a citywide event, when area dining spots offer specially priced meals for lunch and dinner...and a portion of the proceeds benefit local non profit foundations.  This year, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kansas City is the "Community Beneficiary", along with three "destination beneficiaries".  Stop in for lunch ($15) or dinner ($33) at a participating restaurant and you'll get a great meal, at a discount, while helping out those local organizations.

What I like about RW is that you can scroll through the restaurants and be inspired to try someplace new! Quite often the special menus are posted at the site.  Although I've listed here  the participating Brookside/Waldo eateries, get out of your comfort zone and try someplace new, like Modern Farmhouse in Lenexa, Blind Box Barbecue in Shawnee or Cafe Verona in Independence. Most of the restaurants are locally owned and operated.

This year, over 195 restaurants are participating!   That's the largest number ever.  Last year, the event raised $427,000.  This is the most boring time of year (in my opinion) ...it's easy to gather up a group of friends and have a new dining experience together. Make reservations early...many places fill up fast!

More info and menus (as they become available) at Kansas City Restaurant Week-dates again are Jan 11-20, 2019.  Here's the list of Brookside/Waldo places offering specials :

Aixois                                                                          Red Door Woodfired Grill

Avenues Bistro                                                          Summit Grill

Brookside Barrio                                                      Waldo Pizza

Michael Forbes Bar and Grille                                The Well

Mary, this is the best oppotunity to try new restaurants out at reduced rates.  Hope you can enjoy a few new ones too.

The right Charlotte REALTOR!

We just had our Restaurant Week here in Charlotte too, Mary and we definitely took advantage! I love trying restaurants that we've never tried before or that we would normally never select as our 'date night' restaurant! We've found lots of great hidden gems during our Restaurant Week!
