KC Restaurant Week 2012

Recently distinguished by MSNBC as the new culinary destination of 2012, Kansas City has quickly become a hot spot for some of the nation’s top chefs and restaurants.  From the novice foodie to the culinary connoisseur, there there is a dish for every palate in this city’s wide array of unique eateries.  But have no fear if you’ve only begun to explore the veritable buffet of Kansas City cuisine, because Restaurant Week KC is almost upon us! From January 20-29, check out some of the best tastes that KC has to offer at one of the many participating restaurants around town. Avenues Bistro is proud to be apart of this spread and all dishes from our unique KC Restaurant Week menu (see below) tastes even better because Restaurant Week goes towards a good cause…

Kansas City Restaurant Week was created by two founding sponsors: the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association and the Kansas City Convention & Visitors Association, in partnership with native Kansas Citian Derek Gale, Harvesters and other Kansas City area organizations, as well as online restaurant reservations partner OpenTable. The event is designed to spotlight Kansas City as one of the country’s premier dining destinations, and to support the local culinary community.
