Mom coming to KC

I have lived in KC for nine month and Mom is coming again for a visit.

Have taken her to 40 Sardines, Lidia's, Bristol's, and Ya Ya's and am looking for something different,

Any cool suggestions? She likes food that is a little different and loves restaurants with atmosphere.

  1. Em Chamas in the Tuileries or maybe the new Cuban place at Village West might be good choices.

        Webster House is so good, I second the rec. It is very "ladies that lunch"...
        The atmosphere is very elegant and beautiful.

      2. Ruby Foo's there are 2 .One located in the theatre district and one upper west side

          I think this might be a little too much of a round trip. NYC upper west side is about a 24 hour drive!

            LOL!! I read joY WEBER's post and was really confused for a minute.

        2. Sounds like Le Fou Frog might fit the bill

            I second the Le Fou Frog rec. Do you know where it is? Downtown in the Market Place. Tons of atmosphere and great French food.

          2. I'm sorry, I feel like a broken record, but 1924 Main! Especially if you haven't been yet. I think it would be fun to sit at the counter for more interesting atmosphere.
