The Paris of the Plains.

We've been in Kansas City for a little over a month, and I'm starting to have a couple favorites.

I am completely smitten with a fantastic lunch spot called The Farmhouse.  This little joint in the River Market uses all local ingredients for a menu that changes with the seasons.  So far, every meal I've had here has been absolutely delish!  There's also an outdoor patio that will be perfect for the upcoming Fall days.  I would definitely recommend the pork sliders... like buttah!

And for dessert, we have Glace - artisan ice creams for the refined palate.  Last night, I had a combination of Salted Pretzel and Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream.  Garrett chose the infamous Goat Cheese Ice Cream - he's so predictable ;).  I had issues deciding because there were so many mouth-watering options to choose from!  And a little story for my NYC friends... I totally tried to name drop "Balthazar" while we were at this adorable little ice cream post, and the woman behind the counter looked at me like I was crazy.  We're not in NYC anymore, Toto.
