Taste Catering boasts a history of serving gatherings large and small for more than two decades, working closely with each client to plan and host memorable events. Long before guests arrive at the door, Taste Catering and its clients convene over the evening’s every detail, selecting menu items, beverages, and the ideal humidity level to induce a dewy glow. Hosts can choose to have hors d'oeuvres such as prosciutto-wrapped scallops circulated by servers, displayed on tables, or fired into mouths from a repurposed T-shirt cannon. For evenings trimmed with a full dinner, guests can dine buffet style or have entrees such as slow-roasted beef brisket and twice-baked potatoes hand-delivered by wait staff. The option for an open bar lets clients outfit drink lists with choices of craft and domestic bottled beer, red and white wines, mixers, and truth elixir.
A glass bridge is suspended above a field of 9,000 red poppies, each flower representing 1,000 soldiers who died in the Great War. This living symbol is one of the many powerful exhibits within the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, the only museum in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to World War I and dedicated by Congress as the nation's official World War I museum in 2004. Named one of the top 25 museums in the U.S. in TripAdvisor's 2014 Travelers' Choice Awards, the Museum is also rated the No. 1 attraction in Kansas City.
Designed by Ralph Appelbaum, who also lent his expertise to such landmarks as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National World War I Museum integrates first-person accounts into a narrative that flows through its permanent and visiting exhibitions. The Museum's collection comprises World War I artifacts such as field artillery, a 1917 Harley Davidson motorcycle, and unopened cigarette packs from a 1914 Princess Mary Christmas Box. The Museum also includes Over There Caf? and a comprehensive gift store.

Though works from Kansas City artists fill its dining room, The Jacobson's pi?ce de r?sistance is its outdoor patio. Named one of the best patios around town by The Kansas City Star, the space once served as a loading dock for the 4,000-square-foot warehouse the restaurant now occupies. Vines of ivy crawl over recycled pallets and frame gorgeous views of Kansas City's skyline. Under a covered bar, the patio's bartenders whip up handcrafted cocktails that put modern spins on time-tested libations.
The aforementioned cocktails complement the cuisine of The Jacobson, using local, seasonal ingredients to craft upscale eats inspired by the Midwest. Made for sharing, the "Mingle" plates range from meatballs stuffed with goat cheese to sesame-crusted oyster mushrooms paired with sriracha aioli for dipping. A standout is the signature Jacobson burger, whose medley of onion straws, short-rib marmalade, and bone marrow butter earned a "Best Fancy Burger" honor from The Pitch.
