‘Off the menu’: KC chefs share their favorite places to dine out
As a restaurant business reporter, one of the questions I get asked most often by readers is: “What is your favorite restaurant?”
So I wanted to ask the chefs in our “Off the Menu” mini video series the same question, as they often are on top of the best spots in town — from hole-in-the-walls to expensive meals worth the price.
Carlos Falcon of Jarocho Authentic Mexican Cuisine in Kansas City, Kansas, picks The Rieger in the Crossroads: “I think it’s amazing what (Howard Hanna) does when it comes to food, besides being an amazing human being, too.”
And then there’s one “Off the Menu” chef who likes chicken but never orders it when he is dining out.
“When I go out to eat, if there’s a steak, I’m getting it,” Po Wang of Summit Grill said. “I cook everything else in the restaurant.”
