Celebrating and supporting the local hospitality industry, Kansas City Restaurant Week presented by Sysco is now less than one month away, returning to the metro Jan. 13-22.
Now in its 14th year, the annual dining event showcases the region’s diverse dining scene through 10 days of special multi-course menus, all affordably priced at $20, $40, and $50.
Again this year, patrons will have the opportunity to dine their way by choosing to dine in, carry out or enjoy local restaurants via delivery options.
More than 200 restaurants are signed up to participate in the popular annual tradition.
Among the Northland restaurants participating are: Nick and Jake’s, Barrio, Chappell’s, Piropo’s, Trezo Mare, T-Shotz, Cascone’s, Em Chamas, Hereford House, Oak Ridge Family Social Club, Pizza Tascio, Red Door Grill, Summit Grill, and Trago Bar and Tapas.
“Every year, Kansas City Restaurant Week offers residents and visitors alike a unique opportunity to experience the culinary and cultural offerings of our city and its neighborhoods,” said Kathy Nelson, President and CEO of Visit KC. “I encourage all to support our local restaurants, discover those hidden gems off the beaten path and give back to the local hospitality industry – a critical component to our local economy. No matter where you dine, you will discover an array of flavors and amazing deals. Restaurants are a cornerstone of Kansas City’s hospitality and tourism industry and a vital part of our community. They bring us together, make our community unique and nourish our region.”
In addition to casting a spotlight on KC’s culinary scene, 10 percent of proceeds for every Restaurant Week meal sold will benefit three local charities.
In 2023, these causes include featured beneficiary the Cornerstones of Care, the Visit KC Foundation, and the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association (GKCRA) Education Foundation.
Over the course of its first 13 years, more than $3.1 million has been raised by restaurants and diners for important local causes, including significant contributions to groups such as The Don Bosco Centers, Harvesters, BoysGrow, the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kansas City and the Guadalupe Centers.
Visit KC partnered with the GKCRA to create Kansas City Restaurant Week in 2010, and it has since become one of the largest events of its kind in the country.
