Today is the last day of Kansas City's Restaurant Week. I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. I figuredon a good meal for a decent price.
However, we were blown away by how much creativity went into both the cooking and presentation of the meals. During our Restaurant Week outings we brainstormed more local eateries to try in the future. Two years ago, I scoffed at the idea of going to Kansas City Restaurant Week.
I felt as though appreciating anything about Kansas City besides it's low cost of living was tantamount to a major betrayal of my time living away from this part of the country. Silly, right?
I urge other recent hometown nomads to give your hometown or county's Restaurant Week a fair chance. Sure, it may not be as glamorous as the Restaurant Week in the Big City in which you relocated from. But, it will help you to appreciate the food scene of your current city.
