At Blanc Burgers + Bottles, burger doesn?t just mean a basic grilled patty. In addition to American beef, there?s also hormone-free chicken, carnitas-style pork, and curried lentils among nearly 20 protein options. Chefs stuff or pile each with eclectic extras and housemade pickles. Hand-cut fries, beer-battered cheese curds and onion rings, and chicken wings marinated in housemade sauce make for marginally less elaborate sides. Though the options might seem overwhelming, servers with deep culinary knowledge acquired by sleeping on a copy of the menu every night are on hand to sort through them all.
Though the burgers take a wide-ranging, global approach to their flavor palettes, Blanc?s d?cor is decidedly space-age American. Stylized orange starbursts and flocks of bubbles decorate white walls around sleek furniture. Behind a long white counter recalling a luncheonette just opened in 1959, barkeepers pour wine, refreshing seasonal cocktails, and nearly 100 varieties of domestic, imported, and American craft brews, including steam beers, lagers, hop-rich IPAs, and specialty lambics. Even youngsters can hop on the craft-beverage bandwagon with more than 20 boutique sodas in flavors such as apple, blueberry, and pineapple, available with or without cocktail onions.
A passion for flavor has motivated Martin Heuser all his life, carrying him from his family’s restaurant in Bonn, Germany, to the kitchen of two restaurants with Michelin stars, and finally to Kansas City, where he’s planted his culinary and familial roots. Martin and his accomplished sommelier wife, Katrin, draw upon their globetrotting days sampling the tastes of Sweden, Hong Kong, and Vancouver to inform Affare’s menu of modern German cuisine. Plucking the freshest produce and meats available locally, the duo seasons Benton's prime steak, fresh Alaskan halibut, and riesling-marinated chicken and whips up iconic German desserts such as apfelstrudel. Behind the bar, resident opera-singer-cum-bartender Richard Gibson pours glasses of wine from a wooden cask as he belts out the greatest opera hits of the 1880s, '90s, and today. The contemporary motif continues across Affare’s walls, where modern paintings by local artists and a floor-to-ceiling pop-art mural color the spacious dining room.
A wave of pastel hues washes over the walls of Lauren Alexandra's two elegant boutiques, where baby and maternity specialist Pamela Dicapo has been outfitting infants, toddlers, and their parents with upscale accessories since 1994. Newborn essentials—stuffed animals, baby-talk translators, and blankets from brands such as My Blankee and Little Giraffe—share colorful shelf space with apparel from European clothiers such as CakeWalk and Catimini. The shops brim with a bevy of accouterments, and Pamela's passion for all things baby-related extends beyond her store. She and her supporting crew travel to parents’ homes to cultivate domestic comfort with professional room design services, harnessing their decorating finesse to help parents select soothing, kid-friendly wall treatments, furniture, and carpet.
Michael Smith familiarized himself with kitchen life at an early age thanks to his mother, a restaurant manager. The lifelong foodie went on to win three prestigious James Beard Awards, including Kansas City?s first. At his current eponymous eatery, where he doubles as chef and owner, Smith concocts inventive recipes that have been published in culinary magazines such as Gourmet and Bon Appetit. His rotating menu foregrounds gourmet meats?including squab, fluke, and slow-roasted pork?accented with funky accouterments such as eggplant caviar and pickled cauliflower. Individual entrees and four-, five-, or six-course tasting menus zoom from the kitchen to tables, which are clad in white linens and ensconced by orb-shaped lighting fixtures and painting-shaped artwork.
