Kansas City Restaurant Week

Great Meals - With Benefits

The first metro area event of its kind, Kansas City Restaurant Week offers diners an eclectic selection of multi-course fixed price menus at participating area restaurants. At just $15 for lunch and $30 dinner, this is a unique opportunity to sample the finest fare Kansas City has to offer.

 A creation of the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association and the Kansas City Convention & Visitors Association, the program benefits the Harvesters food bank, which provides hungry people with over 60,000 meals weekly across a 26 county area surrounding the metro. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to Harvesters. According to Ellen Feldhausen, Harvesters Director of Communications, every dollar donated lets them provide 5 meals through local food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, and more. So while you're enjoying dinner, you're also helping to feed 15 people.

When you look at the list of more than 100 participating area restaurants and check the individual offerings, it's immediately clear that you can enjoy an amazing array of fine meals at quite a fine price. 

Restaurant week runs today through January 31st. Reservations are suggested since venues are filling up fast in response to this marvelous opportunity. The sponsors suggest using the free service provided by  Open Table to make reservations.

Bon appetit!
