KC Grill ‘N Kabob’s owner, Hamid Tafreshi, is proud of his feature on Check, Please! Kansas City because it has raised awareness about Persian and Iranian cooking. The piece also shared nuggets of information about the eatery, including the fact that chefs there marinate halal lamb, chicken, and filet mignon kebabs for anywhere from 12–24 hours in turmeric, ginger, saffron, and cumin.
In the eatery, the aromas of grilling onions and tomatoes swirl up past a gleeful clutter of photographs, from which Iranian soccer players, cooks, and families grin. Skewered morsels of flame-kissed salmon and gyros draped with a thin lace of tzatziki sauce cover tables. After dipping bread in cool bowls of hummus and baba ghanouj, guests can venture to the all-you-can-eat weekend buffet to practice before competitive-eating contests or visits from detectives looking for candy smugglers.
At Edokko, the fanfare of teppanyaki shows has been exchanged for the peace of a secluded bamboo forest—an ambiance bolstered by the stalks that grow near the entrance. As guests pass between the greenery and the clear surface of a koi pond, they enter into a gold-and-red dining room, where polished stones form mosaics of grappling sumo wrestlers on the walls. At the sushi bar, 18 seats line a granite countertop, allowing diners prime views of chefs as the chefs prepare maki rolls, nigiri, and sashimi.
It seems that a tabletop performance would only serve to disrupt the serenity of the restaurant, says a review in the Pitch, because "the food puts on its own show." Guests receive overtures in the form of detailed picture menus that stoke appetites more safely than jumper cables connected to bellybuttons. The traditional Japanese dishes range from teriyaki meats to noodle soups, and visitors can still order hibachi plates, but without the flashy routine. Specialty rolls such as the crab-and-mango roll or the rainbow-caviar roll collect fresh seafood in expertly wrapped rice and seaweed, and tempura desserts encase cheesecake, bananas, and ice cream in a crispy shell.
Now that you've mastered the first half of being a pool hustler (hiding the fact that you're good at pool), you'll need to master the second and some would say more important half (actually being good at pool). Today's deal will get you there, and makes sure you won't get there hungry: for $10, you get $20 worth of American pub fare and drinks at Side Pockets in Lenexa. Today's Groupon also gets you free pool on any of Side Pockets' 25 tables from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m. (typically $8 per hour per table), so you can practice your bridge shot with the quiet encouragement of comfort foods and quality beers whispering to your brain.
Tanner’s Bar and Grill suppresses sports-loving stomachs with its menu of tantalizing pub fare and cold brews. Kick off consumption with an appetizer such as the full order of Lots-O-Nachos ($7.99) or a half-order of mozzarella sticks ($4.49). Entreewise, Tanner's deep-fried charred jumbo wings ($8.99 for 10) prove that the chicken crossed the road only to tame your taste buds, while the one-pound Maniac Cheese Booga ($10.99) places a bunk bed of hamburger patties alongside a strewn-about toy chest of fries. Meat mavens can also nosh on a pulled pork sandwich ($7.49) or filet mignon ($19.99) before further exacting dominance over dairy animals with ice cream ($1.79).
Carlo's Copa Room is modeled after the famous Copa Room in Las Vegas, beloved hangout of the Rat Pack. At the Kansas City iteration, owner Carlo puts his own stamp on things while still channeling the old-school glamorousness of the original Copa Room. A spacious dining room and outdoor patio hosts groups big and small, where they chat over wine and martinis served from behind a shiny granite bar.
In the kitchen, the talented Kathy Fiorello (who also happens to be Carlo's mom) puts her years of Italian cooking experience to practice by creating a menu of flavorful pastas, pizza, chicken dishes, and more. Kathy, lovingly referred to as "Nani," works alongside the kitchen staff to prepare Italian favorites such as lasagna made from scratch and veal parmigiana.
