Every year, Kansas City Restaurant Week comes along just at the right time to give me an excuse to break those New Year’s resolutions. And you know what? I don’t mind that one bit. Besides, it’s for charity! This year, two more charities will join Harvesters as recipients of the funds raised during the event, which runs Jan. 18-27: The Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association Education Foundation and the Kansas City Regional Destination Foundation Development Foundation. Even without that angle, the events is a winner: With $15 prix fixe lunches and $30 dinners at more than 120 great restaurants all over the metro, who can resist the chance to book a table? I plan to take advantage of the event to check out Rye, the new place from Colby and Megan Garrelts (of Bluestem) out at Mission Farms. I’ve already heard great things from friends and from our restaurant reviewer. (Look for his review in the upcoming February issue.) Providence New American Kitchen is also on the list of new places I want to try. Restaurant Week is also a great time to revisit some old favorites, so I’ve made plans to dine with friends at Room 39 and The American. Looks like I’ll have to renew those New Year resolutions come Jan. 28! Where are you planning to dine out? See the list of participants at kcrestaurantweek.com.
