Foodies unite, because KC Restaurant Week is here. Get your dinner reservations made and your hotel rooms booked for one of the most popular weeks of the year. With more than 150 restaurants participating in Restaurant Week, you can eat out for lunch and dinner from January 11th – January 20th and not even come close to tasting all of the food.
Need help deciding where to eat? Here is a handful of Overland Park restaurants participating this year.
The Brass Onion is a mix of Midwestern and low country options that please any crowd. For Restaurant Week, the family-owned local restaurant pulled out all the stops. Dinner includes four courses, beginning with their signature Brass Onion Dip. For a main course, you’ll chose between Mr. B’s Fried Chicken, Sautéed Shrimp and Grits and a 6oz filet. We suggest pairing your meal with a Brass Onion Gipson, and there are four versions to suite any taste.
While they may be new to Overland Park, Plaza III definitely isn’t new to steaks. After 28 years on the Country Club Plaza, Plaza III has made their pilgrimage to Overland Park. If you rarely find yourself eating a nice steak, now is your chance. Order the Kansas City Strip Steak (medium rare) off of their Restaurant Week dinner menu and never look back.
Go with: Your significant other. Nothing says “I love you” more than a Kansas City Strip. Explore the menu.
Get the crew together and head out for Q39 in Overland Park, because this food is road-trip worthy. The dinner portion of the Restaurant Week menu has options including the Judge’s Plate and Wood Fired Grilled Salmon for entrees… Sorry, had to wipe drool off the keyboard.
Go with: Friends! Make sure you all order something different and share your food. Explore the menu.
Catch a local by surprise and ask them to name the best Italian food in Kansas City. Four out of five will exclaim “Garozzo’s!” (We tried this experiment, it’s very accurate.) The entire menu is filled with crave-worthy items. The first course option of a Cannelloni Pasta Crepe down to the Veal Eggplant Parmesan for a main course, you won’t be disappointed. If you can tear yourself away from the Restaurant Week menu, Garozzo’s Chicken Spiedini should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Go with: Your coworkers. Suggesting Garozzo’s for a post-meeting meal while you’re in Overland Park is a sure-fire way to rally the team. Explore the menu.
J. Gilbert’s namesake is Kansas City restaurant legend, Joe Gilbert. True to its roots, J. Gilbert’s keeps things simple with the highest quality ingredients in beautifully composed plates. Their Restaurant Week menu is a steal with a choice of Scallops, Duck Chop, Crab Cakes or a Filet for a main course.
Go with: Your father in-law. Make amends for those holiday snafus with a top-tier dining experience. Explore the menu.
Not one, not two, not three, BUT FOUR COURSES. When the first course has onion rings as an option, you know you are in for a treat. Follow that up by a choice of salads, then move on to the main attraction. Choose from The Sampler, Blackberry Barbecue Salmon, or Prime Rib before moving on to the fourth and final course. This is where you get to choose from carrot cake or a chocolate brownie. Life is rough.
Go with: Competitive eaters. Really, four courses is a lot of food. Explore the menu.
