  • LaMar's Donuts Lee's Summit
    Ray Lamar hasn't spent decades perfecting his donuts. In fact, his namesake shops still use the same recipes that Ray developed in 1933—at the age of 17—when he got his first job working a donut fryer. World War II and a postwar career as a stockbroker interrupted Ray's donut-making pursuits, although he returned to his roots in 1960 when he founded the first LaMar's Donuts. The shop went on to become a Kansas City icon, with crowds arriving well before 6 a.m. to line up outside the doors and taunt the roosters for sleeping in. Ray and his wife, Shannon, eventually decided to expand their business into a regional empire, and LaMar's Donuts currently boasts 27 franchised stores spread across six states. Even with all of this growth, decades-old traditions still dictate how things are done. The workers prepare more than 75 different kinds of donuts, hand-making fresh batches of perennial favorites as well as recent inventions each and every morning. In addition to the original glazed creation that dates back to 1933, the menus can feature a variety of cake donuts with flavors such as red velvet, apple spice, and maple. Since donuts and coffee go together as naturally as paper shredders and subpar report cards, the stores also prepare cappuccinos, mochas, and other coffee drinks. These are all made with handpicked beans that slowly roast inside Italian brick ovens.

  • Jumpin' Catfish Restaurant
    Known for growing cotton and soybeans, many farms in the South known now nurture a new crop?catfish. Converting their fields to ponds, farmers raise the whiskered fish on an all-grain diet to develop meat with a clean, slightly sweet taste and reduced cholesterol. Every filet at Jumpin' Catfish Restaurant comes from this stock, which the chefs prepare in various ways: breaded and fried in the Southern tradition, marinated in lemon and pepper, or dusted with cajun spices, like the mayor of New Orleans after their morning bath. They then pair the plump, juicy filets with sides such as hushpuppies and white beans with ham. The chefs extend their culinary skills to other seafood as well, from Norwegian salmon to Alaskan snow-crab legs. They also work with wild game such as quail and frog legs, and prepare Southern fare, such as fried chicken.

  • Canoe Club
    Old photos, canoes, and sailing trophies adorn the walls of Canoe Club Restaurant’s lake-house-themed dining room, where diners sit down to lobster bisque or tacos with grilled tilapia. Around them, rough-cut timbers, knotted-pine paneling, and a natural stone fireplace create a nostalgic air, which live musicians enhance with the sounds of bluegrass, folk, blues, and jazz every Friday and Saturday. In the kitchens, chefs whip up homemade salsa to serve with corn chips and wrap eight-ounce filet mignons in bacon before sending them out to the dining room or an outdoor cedar deck. To help wash down feasts, Canoe Club bartenders craft specialty cocktails, pour craft beers, and supply domestic and imported red and white wines by the glass, bottle, or crystal bathtub.
