Inventive food combinations and great quality of their dishes. Select the 4-course meal to be able to pick multiple entrees to try. And the lemon meringue tart is amazing!

Eat from every area of the menu - it is designed perfectly to compliment a "next course" approach. This is possibly the finest food in Kansas City, and the sommelier is easily one of the best I've spoken with in her understanding of regions and pairing. This is a restaurant that understands experience and excellence.

From Our Editors

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.
