Kansas City "Legends Mall" - Saturday night

Any recommendations in the Kansas City "Legends Mall" area?

Looking for a place for Saturday night that has great food, price really isn't a concern.

    Where did you end up?

      Stix can be fun. I don't know that the food is "great", but it was pretty good. We've only done the habachi style dining. Otherwise I would go with Yardhouse or Jazz, Jazz will have live music and I think their Cajun is good.

        Just don't order any sushi at Stix, dreadful--unseasoned rice, stale nori, poor quality fish. The Yardhouse is your best bet if you must eat at the Legends.

        If you like good beer definitely check out the Yardhouse. It can be a bit spendy, but I've enjoyed myself there.

          Mostly at the Legends you'll find chain restos. Off the top of my head I can't think of any locally owned gems. Of those I would say Yardhouse is the best and if you like beer, you're in luck. They have an impressive list of micros.

          You'll also find an Arthur Bryant's, which is a KC chain. It isn't my favorite KC BBQ, and if I were recommending AB's I would recommend the original KCMO location, but it'll do.

            I have tried that Bryan't location several times and never been happy with it. (I do like the original).

            Granny's Chicken Ranch is a local gem.

            If you have any kids in your group, they will love you for taking them to the T-Rex Cafe .http://www.kansastravel.org/trexcafe.htm This is the first location for this concept and though it was created by the same people the food and atmosphere are better than a Rainforest Cafe.

              Arthur Bryant's at The Legends? No no no. Once Bryant's was a legend; no more. I ate there, unwittingly, stupidly (not usually a rancorous person) a few weeks ago, and it was awful. I am sorry I can't recommend any place to eat near The Legends, because I only went there once, and I am not familiar with the area. I would be inclined to hit the road and eat downtown, maybe.
