Corvino

dined at corvino last night. we found it to be very impressive on all fronts. the place looks great. live music is a great touch. the cocktails are as good as anywhere. the wine list is thoughtful although i would maybe want to see more old-world reds by the glass. we tried several dishes: steak tar...

Re: KC's quirks and oddities (keep it light)

user: warwickland has furnished me with a copy of this recipe, which does look promising. http://www.extraordinarybbq.com/grilled-pork-steaks/ as beloved as pork steaks are in that town, i assumed it was user error on my part and not some fatal flaw intrinsic to the cut.

Re: KC's quirks and oddities (keep it light)

i've never had a pork steak at a STL backyard bbq, but we received pork steaks in our Local Pig meat-box for a while. we thought it was basically the worst cut of meat ever. we received pork steaks several boxes in a row, and i never could figure out a way to make them taste good or be anything othe...

Re: AirBnB Ideas

we never stay in hotels anymore, anywhere (unless work is paying for it). airbnb is where it's at. a relative has several airbnb units in KC and she does very well with them. my neighbor in south hyde park had a airbnb in the lower half of his duplex and it seemed to be pretty busy - and it never bo...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

In Cerner's case they are going after college grads who would more likely want to live downtown anyway. And downtown is getting schools and developing towards family living anyway, so many may not 'grow out of city living', as it this the case with professional leaning families in much larger citie...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

i dont think Rye on the plaza is an effort to entice JoCo residents to go to the Plaza. (1) JoCo presence on the plaza is already quite strong and probably isn't hurt or helped by Rye. (2) the plaza is a super-regional destination so it's probably more about attracting or keeping the MO/KS/IA/NE/AR/...

Nice. Good Mexican food is weirdly lacking south of downtown in KCMO.

Depends on where you are, but I would argue that in general northeast actually fares a bit better. Not much, but you've got little dive bars


what bars are still open in Northeast?

Re: Brookside

I have heard a new restaurant will be announced for the Julian space soon. It will fill a niche that isn't currently in BKS. Also, a pizza/taproom will be opening adjacent to Brookside wine and spirits on 63rd as a sister business to the liquor store. 1. Any more info on the operation taking over t...

it's also much more walkable to amenities and services than our prior location (south hyde park) trying not to derail the conversation about BKS, but this statement is such a perfect example of how far Hyde Park, specifically, is from functioning as a truly desirable urban neighborhood.

Re: Brookside

Why does Brookside have such a bland restaurant scene? It seems like Waldo has passed up Brookside in terms of Selection and Quality. that is a really great question, and i don't really have the answer. a guess could be that BKS, in general, is pretty family-focused and also has a fair amount of ol...

Re: Thrillist ranks KC burgers

The Corner Cocktail at 85/Wornall has a very good burger. Also Aixois has a great burger and maybe the most expensive in town (I think it's like $17 with cheese) but it's actually worth it - and, miraculously, arrives medium rare. There is nothing worse than an overcooked burger, and so many places ...
