The Kansas City restaurant scene is a bit of a hidden gem. Kitchens across the metro area create delectable dishes at affordable prices. But, outside of Kansas City’s world-renowned barbecue, these restaurants typically don’t receive the recognition available in other cities.
KC Restaurant Week is an opportunity to change that. It gives consumers a chance to recognize that greatness of Kansas City food, all while doing good for the community. Hundreds of restaurants from all over Kansas City register as official participants, offering $15–$33 three-course meals during KC Restaurant Week, with a portion of each sale going toward a local charity.
Of all the available options, we hope you’ll put Parkway Social Kitchen at the top of your list for Restaurant Week in Kansas City. Located on the beautiful Country Club Plaza, Parkway’s location, atmosphere and menu are perfect for any type of night out. Bring the family or a date; you’ll have a great time at Parkway and enjoy a delicious meal. As an exciting newcomer to Kansas City’s restaurant scene, Parkway’s food and mission to create community embody the best aspects of Kansas City.
As you’ll see from this guide to KC Restaurant Week, Parkway is can’t-miss option.
What is Kansas City Restaurant Week?
KC Restaurant Week is an annual event to kick off the year in delicious style. This tradition began in 2010, and it has grown along with Kansas City’s restaurant options. It was common only a few years ago to only associate KC food with barbecue. While the barbecue here is the best in the world, there’s much more going on in kitchens around Kansas City than people realize.
This city is now home to more than five James Beard semifinalists — one of the most prestigious awards a restaurant or bar can earn. We’re sure there are more on the way, too. KC Restaurant Week highlights these and other great spots. Each participating restaurant prepares a special multi-course menu for Restaurant Week in Kansas City, and many have drinks specials to compliment the food. A portion of sales from each meal will support a local charity. For 2019 KC Restaurant week, that is the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City.
As Kansas City continues to grow, Restaurant Week is the perfect way to keep up with the hottest new spots around town.
