It goes without saying that many of the seafood joints in KC find fresh fish from all corners of the globe. But a few place special emphasis on sustainably sourced items. Head to Westport and you'll find Sailor Jack's, a Beer KC concept featuring fresh fish, lobster rolls, Gulf-style shrimp boils and creative cocktails. Up north, you’ll find Justus Drugstore, a fine dining experience dishing out a medley of courses, many featuring fish brought up right in the Midwest.
At Anton’s in the Crossroads, fresh tilapia is raised in the taproom’s basement thanks to their aquaponics system, which allows the team to control what the fish eat.
Dine in the historic Webster House, an intimate Crossroads institution found inside a restored Romanesque-style schoolhouse that values regional ingredients regardless of the mealtime. Room 39 in Leawood and Midtown combines local agriculture with a revolving door of fish entrees (among other offerings), including striped bass and soft shell crab.
