KC-Report on The Drop

We had the chance to have dinner at this new bar/restaurant in the Martini Corner a few weeks ago with friends. The menu seemed to be somewhat limited (paninis, salads, bruschetta), but the flavors were inventive and the quality was quite good. The bruschetta was fun - 4 large slices of bread with your choice of toppings (about 12 to choose from). Four four of us, we ended up splitting an order of bruschetta, we all had different salads, then split two paninis. To finish, we had dessert paninis - fluffernutter and smores with banana (I think). The owners/waiters/chef were all very nice (even introducing themselves) and the service was good. We were the only people there at 7:45 on a Saturday night, but it was full by the time we left around 10:00. Will definately try again.

KC brunch

The Classic Cookie (Wornall & Gregory) - Although the seating can be a logistical nightmare, food is very good. Recently enjoyed the potato & sausage casserole. Don't know if the multiple beers the night before were dictating my taste buds, but I devoured it. My father really enjoyed the pancakes, too.

Dagwoods Café (1117 Southwest Blvd.) – Greasy spoon, big time. “Famous” Dagwoods breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese, hashbrowns, & bacon on Texas Toast. Think Egg McMuffin...on steroids. A buddy of mine took down the biscuits & gravy in record time.

I second the notion on the Peachtree. If their dinner is any indicator of the brunch scenario, I bet it’s pretty solid. It’s on my hit-list...

Kansas City Role Call

Rookie making his inaugural post...Been reading the boards for years, but have always stayed on the sidelines. Had a nice run of eating out this past week in KC, so I figured it was a good opportunity to fire up a post –

Copa Room – Italian joint at 34th & Broadway. Had always heard good things, and it lived up to the hype. Took down the sampler platter (lasagna, chicken spedini, and penne with Alfredo) and enjoyed every last bite. Although I was forced to lie down in the back set on the drive home, not good times. Also, do yourself a favor a save room for cheesecake, at least one bite, may be the best in the city.

The Bristol – Oldie, but goodie. It had been a while. Feasted on the featured halibut with sweet potato and bacon hash...amazing. Also sampled my sister-in-law’s Copper River salmon, excellent. Oh, and don’t forget about the biscuits, with those addictive chemicals.

La Cocina del Puerco – Also an old favorite that we hit up on Friday evening. It had been a while, didn’t know they went from cafeteria style ordering upon arrival, to sit down situation with waiters. I kind of liked the old way, unique. The salsa was very good, fresh. My chicken tostada left a little to be desired, the carnitas will be ordered next visit. My wife really enjoyed her fish tacos. Lastly, our server forgot to put our order in, which actually only caused a slight delay in service, however, the manager still comped our meals, which was a good call.
