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.

Founded and exclusively run by practicing theater artists, the Kansas City Actors Theatre brings peerless artistry to carefully curated seasons of theatrical classics.

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.
