Looking for delicious plans? Whether you want to impress a date, show your fam the best of KC, or just get out of the house, we’ve got you covered… all while supporting local. 

Here is your weekly roundup of the best food and drink offerings around Kansas City. Cheers!

Something New

District Pour House + Kitchen: District Pour House has reopened in a new location. Now in Shawnee, its neighbors include Drastic Measures, Transport Brewery, and McLain’s Market. Stop in this week or pop in while celebrating Old Shawnee Days this weekend. District Pour House offers cocktails, beer, and wine, plus American-style salads, appetizers, and entrees.

Acre: New to the Northland restaurant is Acre’s Chef’s Counter Hearth Experience and Chef Cooking Classes. Now anyone can learn pro tips for a properly grilled steak and to fold Acre’s signature cappelletti pasta. Or, if you’re less interested in being hands-on, try the hearth experience and enjoy a five-course, prix-fixe tasting menu prepared and presented by Chef Longres and his staff.

Kinship Cafe: Now you can enjoy Kinship coffee at home. Purchase 12 oz. bags of their first coffee drop! Blends include Brazil, Guatemala, and Kenya. Stop by their Strawberry Hill cafe for a fresh cup and a bag of beans.

June Features

Q39: Through the month of June, Q39 has a smart pairing whiskey for their famous Q. For $25, dine-in guests at both the Overland Park and Midtown Q39 locations can enjoy 4 pours from featured local distilleries: West Bottoms Whiskey Co., Union Horse, Tom’s Town, and J. Rieger & Co.

1900 Barker: Three words: lemon, rainbow, croissant. With two locations in Lawrence, you’ll have to go see these stunning pride pastries for yourself. The lemon cream croissants will be available through the month of June.

Mission Taco Joint: Throughout June, Mission Taco Joint in Crossroads and South Plaza are featuring a Unicorn Taco with a portion of proceeds from each taco donated to Transformations in Kansas City. This cute and colorful taco is a waffle cone dipped in pink-colored white chocolate, then filled with Fruity Pebbles cereal milk-flavored ice cream.
