How to navigate Kansas City Restaurant Week 2024
The annual event runs from Jan. 12-21. Over 200 participating restaurants have created special multi-course menus, with 10% of proceeds going to local nonprofit Kanbe’s Markets. But restaurants are reminding diners to give them some grace during one of their busiest times of the year.
“It is absolutely all-hands-on-deck, but it's a fun thing. This is something that the staff gets thrilled about,” he told KCUR’s Up To Date.
The 10-day citywide event, from Jan. 12-21, has over 200 participating restaurants, all which have created special multi-course menus at discounted prices.
“These are obviously great two, three, four-course menus at discounted prices, so it's certainly cost savings,” says Derek Byrne with Visit KC. “It's a reason to try something new.”
Riggins has participated in Restaurant Week since he opened Brewer’s Kitchen in 2019. The Midtown spot sources its ingredients locally and makes everything from scratch.
And while he’s looking forward to the next 10 days, Riggins says diners must remember to be patient with staff.
“We want you to just keep supporting those local businesses,” he says. “And ultimately, you know, just… give us a little bit of grace.”
