119th & Metcalf-KC

Can I get some recs for a nice sit down-not a chain restaurant in this area? Something for everyone kind menu-Bistro, Italian, or even a brew pub would be good. Thanks in advance!

  1. You're right in the middle of chain-hell but there are a few options
    40 Sardines is at 119th and Roe.
    Spin Pizza
    I really like Chosun at 127th and Metcalf for Korean

    1. If you don't mind spending a mint (even though it is totally worth it) Amour Brazillian Fiery Steakhouse is right there. It works out to be about $50 a head before tip but you won't leave hungry

      1. Sounds like you are looking for Yia Yia's EuroBistro, at 119th and Roe, about a mile west of Metcalf ( Nice, but not too nice, with a range of price points. Nothing too exotic, but well-prepared. It is part of a chain, but it's a local chain

          I actually love Yia Yia's, but there's one close to where I live, so we eat there a lot. Have any of you tried Korma Sutra?

            Korma Sutra is very good, but small.

              I remember Ruchi, at College and Antioch, as being a little bigger. Also excellent Indian.

          2. I just did a quick Google Maps of the area, and this place looks interesting

            Cassis KC ( -- another French bistro type place at 117th and Roe

              Yeah, I took my mom to Cassi for lunch on her birthday last year. Great food, good service, nice atmosphere. I imagine it'd be pricey for dinner, but maybe if you're in a different income bracket than me...

            2. Some great recs no doubt, but no brew pubs. If you decide that is the route you want to take, I recommend Barley's Brewhaus at 119th and Quivira (a few minutes west) of your location. I really like the Buffalo Wrap, my brother-in-law LOVES the fish and chips (but I've never tried them). It is part of a local chain, but I think that the food is all made in house. They also have 99 beers on tap.

                Paddy O'Quigley's 119th and Roe.. Part of chain, but they have excellent brew pub style food.
