One Great Gratin
A couple weeks ago I talked with Executive Chef Matt Barnes
at Pierpont’s.   You can read that interview here ,
should you so wish. Chef Barnes said he cooks simply at home due to time
constraints and “selective” diners. This man is busy!   So when I asked ...

The Brass Onion - Leawood KS
New and Crafty Call me
parochial, call me insular, call me narrow, but since I don’t live out there,
going south is sometimes a bit of a trial.   So I’m thrilled when something opens out there that’s worthy of
comment.   That’s the newest restaurant,

What’s Your Favorite Restaurant?
What’s Your Favorite Restaurant? I get asked that a lot.  So does every food writer, everyone who works for a publisher like the Restaurant Guide, every chef.  It’s a great dinner topic for a lagging conversation (even if everyone isn’t “into” food).  But l...

One Great Chef: Matt Barnes
One thing I like and appreciate about the restaurant
industry is that it is possible to rise from dishwasher to chef to even owner over
a period of time.   While Matt Barnes,
Executive Chef of Pierpont’s , didn’t
exactly do that, he did begin 13 years ago a...

Waldo Tai Place
Thai One On Kansas
City, our oh so international home, is lucky to have a number of Thai
restaurants.   You may not be aware that
one of the very first was the original Thai Place on 87 th Street in

one was founded...

Please, Sir
When Dickens’ Oliver Twist said, “Please sir, I want more,”
he was starving.   Restaurants today often
hear a variation of this, but it has nothing to do with starving.   Instead, it’s about their generosity to all the
many fund raisers for noble causes goi...

Porto do Sul
Re-Discovering
Reason The other day, despite not being all that hungry, I stopped
by Porto do Sul in sunny southern
Overland Park. No real reason – just hadn’t been in for a while.   I was so pleasantly surprised I thought I’d

Life of a Restaurateur
The Glitzy and Glamorous Life of a Restaurateur Comfortably ensconced in my padded chair, I daintily sip a glass of good summer rosé and peruse the elegant menu.  Ooh, I think, I could own a restaurant like this.  It would be sooo cool. So very fab. So glam...

It’s an Adventure!
Since it was cool, even if rainy, at long last this week, I
took some friends on the streetcar and we ate at il Lazzarone , a not so new anymore pizza place in the city market.
What struck me most was that three of them hadn’t been on the street car and
