Steak is the breakfast of champions, the lunch of kings, the dinner of industrial barons, and the dessert of T. rexes. Enjoy high-quality cuts regardless of social or philosophical status with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale comfort fare at WestChase Grille in Overland Park. This Groupon is valid for dinner Sunday–Thursday; dinner starts at 5 p.m.
Inspired by his training at Paris's esteemed Le Cordon Bleu, Chef John Westerhaus funnels French influences into WestChase Grille's menu of upscale comfort fare. Napkins quiver with anticipation as servers deliver juicy filet mignons ($29 for an 8-oz. cut) and Hi Ho Farms braised lamb shank ($26). In addition to selecting top cuts of certified Angus beef, the kitchen smokes fresh salmon to form grilled salmon and corn cakes with spicy chipotle hollandaise ($11). Chicken breasts stuffed with prosciutto, ricotta, and spinach ($19) introduce tongues to Italian flair, as do diver scallops ($26), whose bed of soft crimini risotto melts in the mouth, just like the finest Italian leather.
Five nights a week, local musicians such as Lonnie McFadden and Angela Hagenbach pepper meals with jazz riffs cooler than a snowman driving a 1964 GTO. Visit the restaurant's Facebook page for news about upcoming acts.
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.
