Critics Reviewed Restaurants:

Mestizo (5270 W. 116th Place, Leawood, KS 66211)
Critic Mary Bloch like everything about this place but the salsa. It tasted like spaghetti sauce to her.

Westport Street Fair (corner of Westport and Pennsylvania behind Harry's)
Opened by Aaron and Richard from Westport Cafe, cute courtyard, tacos, quesadillas and ramen dishes. Enjoyed the short rib filling. Tortas with pork too. Says everything was wonderful.

Gram & Dun, A Gastro Pub (600 Ward Parkway, Kansas City MO 64112)
Critic Chris Becicka says the food is inventive and fun.

The Marble Top Cafe (8435 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, MO 64114)
Critic Chris Becicka says they make good sandwiches, gyros, kebabs. Homemade hummas. Nice combo platter.
