Kansas City: Why I love/hate you
Ok, so you're a fabulous place for casual foodies like myself. So many simple choices for great food, coffee and baked goods. So what's my beef? everything in closed on Monday! Ok, Ok, so in the long run that's probably a good thing, but all i had was a monday, and I missed out on so many places I wanted to try. Anyway, until I return I thank you very much for:
The Roasterie (and Broadway to a slightly lesser extent)
Sharps for incredible biscuits and gravy and potatoes
Christopher Elbow chocolates
Wheatfield's out in Lawrence.
I had a list of bakeries to hit, including Fervere, Boulangerie Phillipe, and Napoleon, but they were all closed. KC, you have a lot to be proud of. I would give my left arm just to have cappuccinos like you can get at the roasterie in Dallas. I look forward to returning and trying all i missed, including some more "grown up" food as well.
