When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Demonstrate a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals with today's Groupon for charbroiled dining at WestChase Grille in Overland Park. WestChase is an OpenTable Diners' Choice Winner. Choose between two options:
- $20 for $40 worth of dinner fare
- $10 for $20 worth of lunch fare
WestChase's menu is overflowing with modern delights of American flavor. Open a dialogue with your stomach by presenting it with lump blue crab cake ($11) or lobster spring rolls with Thai ginger dipping sauce ($11). A braised pork shank ($24) battles hunger with its battalion of beefy pork muscle and artillery of blue-cheese smashed potatoes and red cabbage braised with red wine. Or, opt for a southern-style delicacy, the shrimp & stone-ground grits with spicy chorizo ($22). Finish with a slice of homemade coconut cream pie ($7).
Fine dining doesn't have to be a stuffy experience, so relax in the purple booths and wooden chairs and enjoy live music five nights a week at WestChase. The wooden floors and roomy, romantic ambience set an excellent mood for marriage proposals, divorce proposals, and admissions of twinning. The casually elegant dining is enhanced further by the silent reassurance of stone walls, which cannot weep.
Reservations are recommended.
Armed with a culinary education from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, Chef John Westerhaus uses classical techniques and international flavors to create refined American cuisine. His inspiration stems from a deep love for the simple menus of Parisian sidewalk cafés. For starters, a chipotle-spiked hollandaise sauce blankets a plate of smoked salmon and corn cakes, and garlic-ginger dipping sauce graces lobster spring rolls. For entrees, the restaurant's chefs demonstrate their mastery of traditional American cuisine by grilling rib eyes, Kansas City–style strip steaks, and trout fillets over a pile of smoldering baseballs.
Purple booths and napkins add a splash of color to the dining room's gently lit earth tones. Stone walls divide the dining area from the kitchen, and two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows separate the restaurant from the outside world. To keep things lively indoors, the restaurant hosts live performances by local musicians Wednesday–Sunday, serenading diners with cool jazz and gentle R&B melodies.
