Ricco’s Italian Bistro serves up cozy neighborhood vibe along with pasta, pizza, seafood and more

In the spot formerly occupied by a locally owned favorite known for wood-fired pizzas, three families collaborated in 2003 to open Ricco’s Italian Bistro. With 75 seats, including the bar and high-tops, plus a 15-seat patio, Ricco’s has earned its stripes as a neighborhood destination. Which, according to one partner, Tim Tobin, was the trio’s goal: an attractive spot defined by quaint ambiance and stellar food.

Culinary tours a great way to learn about city’s food and history

After eating my way along two food tours, one here in Kansas City and one while on a trip to Charleston, S.C., I am a champion for them. Each tour I took featured an array of incredible tastes and small plates. Kansas City tours include ones that explore the Crossroads, barbecue, Prohibition era cocktails, Sunday brunch and now, streetcar finds.
