"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!
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 :
