Your Personality Playlist
1. Wake up early for a “Cake and a Smile” at City Market’s popular Succotash Bruncheonette. The diner's signature pancakes (complete with a bacon grin) keep locals lined up around the block. After breakfast, browse the region’s freshest produce and baked goods at one of the region’s largest farmers’ markets at City Market.
2. Sample a Kansas City Strip at one of our many steakhouses. Each one, from Capital Grille to Plaza III, has their own take on the signature dish. For vegetarian diners, the menu at Blue Bird Bistro features locally-produced, organic foods.
3. Save room during your visit for barbecue, as Kansas City boasts more than 100 restaurants devoted to that tangy flavor. A local staple for more than 50 years, Fiorella’s Jack Stack claims to have the most extensive barbecue menu in the country. Our recommendation? Start with the burnt ends and then work your way down.
4. And what would dinner be without dessert? Try what’s on-hand at Baby Cakes, a new gourmet "cupcakery." Or if it’s chocolate you crave, venture over to the Crossroads Arts District and visit Christopher Elbow Chocolates. The chef’s artistic creations have everyone talking, including Oprah Winfrey and Food & Wine magazine.
