Rye in Kansas City, MO - anyone tried it?

We're going to be in KC,MO next week visiting family and taking advantage of some free babysitting for our 14 month old so that we can have a date...Rye looks just like the kind of place for us. Has anyone tried it? Last time we were there we went to The Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange and enjoyed that meal quite a bit.

  1. My son and dil took me to Rye at Mission Farms for my birthday in July. As far as I know it's not in KCMO. Anyway the meal was excellent, a lot of local stuff!

    1. Rye gets great reviews, but the night we were there it was disappointing. My salmon was clearly overcooked. And one of our friends had a side of potatoes that was cold. Lots of cool vibe, but not sure how much attention's being paid to details.

      Best food in KC, imo, is downtown at Le Fou Frog. Best food near Rye is Ya Ya's (I know, it's not trendy and has been there for years, but it's still great). In between, in Prairie Village, is Cafe Provence.

      The trendy place we have not yet been but I hear lots of good comments about is the Jacobson ... near the Rieger, I believe.

      1. Consider trying Novel in KCMO. It opened recently and was by far and away the best meal I've had in KC.

        1. Was there for a late dinner and loved it. The house made pork skins were a nice treat.

          1. Thanks everyone...we sadly didn't get a chance to make it to Rye but it sounds like we need to put it on our list for the next visit (and I thought it was in KC but thanks for clarifying...I assume everything is in KC but that's just my bad habit).
