Best of Kansas City: The front and back of the house

Tio was tops in 2009

​On the eve of The Pitch‘s 2010 “Best of Kansas City” issue next week, we thought it would be entertaining and revealing to take a backward glance at some of our past winners. Who’s still on top? Which restaurants had their 15 minutes of fame and are barely remembered today?

For over a decade we’ve honored, in the pages of the “Best of Kansas City” issue, the men and women who really make a restaurant work: the chefs, bartenders, waiters and waitresses. Last year’s nod for “Chef of the Year” went to Celina Tio, who had just opened her Brookside bistro, Julian.
