This was hard to do, but here are my top 5 favorite restaurants in KC and why I love them.
Le Fou Frog
My all time favorite is by far, Le Fou Frog I love, love, love everything about this place. When you drive up, it looks a little sketch, but trust me everything about this place is divine. From the sexy candlelit ambiance to the heavenly escargot – that’s right, I said the snails were heavenly – it’s all wonderful. If you’d like to go all out, try the dover sole. It’s truly an incredible dish.
In close second is a newer KC restaurant. I was actually sad that this placed opened after I left KC. The service is phenomenal. We had two servers tending to our table for our entire meal. The environment is super swanky. I felt like I was in a much bigger city.
The Majestic This place is what KC is made of – jazz, steaks and cocktails. This is an iconic KC restaurant, and I would be remiss if I didn’t have it on this list.
Rosedale BBQ We are talking about KC people, so I had to throw in my two cents on this topic. Most people say you gotta try Gates or Arthor Byrant’s. Don’t get me wrong, those are both solid choices, but I prefer Rosedale’s sauce and meat.
Go Chicken Go I think this place actually won the title of best fried chicken in KC, but I have to be honest. I’ve never had the chicken. I always opt for the fried gizzards. If that sounds gross to you – don’t knock it until you have tried it! They are damn good and the rolls here, I am quite sure are made out of pure butter. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
