A Guide to Park Place for your Palate

Leawood’s premier shopping destination, Park Place, is home to a wide array of restaurants and shops each featuring a unique dining experience. With fine dining, sweet treats and coffee shops there is something for everyone. 801 Chophouse has earned a reputation as an upscale dining establishment, with a late 1920’s New York City steak house interior that lends to a lavish atmosphere. Perhaps best known for serving only the finest delectable prime steaks and the freshest seafood available. A classic steakhouse, 801 is the perfect place for celebrating a special occasion. Bamboo Penny’s has been proclaimed as “The Steakhouse of Thai Restaurants.” The area’s newest chef-driven concept is complete with a relaxing patio overlooking the green space of Park Place. The coveted rangoon is an absolute crowd favorite and guarantees a return visit. Home also to the electric Bamboo Room, a rooftop craft cocktail oasis, is the perfect place to soak up a night out with friends.

 Bruú Café, a bubble tea shop, is the newest addition opening this fall. Their flagship location on the Plaza has a loyal following and serves up distinctive, trendy beverages with or without the bubbles. BurgerFi is known for their casual open air dining experience, taking pride in using top shelf, hormone free meats. They are home to what many say- might just be the best veggie burger in the area. Their made-in-house sauces perfectly compliment an order of crispy fries or double-battered onion rings and don’t miss the custard shakes. If ice cream is what you are craving, head over to Ice Cream Bae. Indulge in their creative concoctions made with fun ingredients like sweet cereals, pocky sticks and brightly colored cones that have made them popular among the Instagram crowd. Complete with a neon sign backdrop for posing alongside friends. Be sure to sample the unique cereal milk flavor. It’s one-of-a-kind.

Outta the Blue is a bright and breezy beach cafe decorated with playful swings and surfboards adorning the walls, the moment you step inside you are transported to the beach. This Made-in-KC coffee bar by day and hip cocktail spot by night boasts a menu of flavorful local coffees, cold-pressed juices and all natural wines and draft beers. Don't miss their Fall Drink Menu! Panache Chocolatier is the creation of Five Star Grand Master Chocolatier Julie House and showcases her talent in the form of luxurious handcrafted artisanal chocolates. Her beloved Choco Poppo has a loyal following all of its own. The perfect place to indulge your senses or perhaps purchase an exclusive gift that won’t soon be forgotten. 

Revered for their house-made pasta and impeccable entrees, Plate is the ideal location to savor a fine Italian wine over a flavorful dinner of carbonara or soak up the sun on the patio while sampling their appetizing lunch offerings. A modern decor and a chef's table at the counter that allow for an immersive experience are just a few of the unique characteristics Plate offers. RA Sushi is renowned for their delicious sushi, signature rolls and Japanese fusion cuisine.Their acclaimed Happy Hour menu invites you to indulge in exotic cocktails in a trendy atmosphere with an open air vibe. They also offer a laid back patio and a bento box style lunch menu that is quite popular.

Verdigris is a show stopper, and is the premiere “see and be seen” location in Johnson County. An elevated and rich cocktail lounge, part of the Monarch Bar and Mercury Room family, Verdigris has been touted as being “the hip, younger brother.” Here the bartenders are the star of the show. The cocktails are the best you've ever had, with the most Instagrammable happy hour on social. It is an upscale scene, with an impressive bar, delicious, shareable small plates, and a convincingly flavorful non-alcoholic drink menu. Highly recommended for a date night or girls night out, filled with perfect selfie spots and cozy nooks. Verdigris is more than an establishment, it is an experience. Also coming to Park Place in winter 2023 is Mission Taco Joint, known for their delicious street tacos made with quality ingredients. Hailing from St. Louis with locations on the Plaza and Crossroads, this will be their third location and they have a notable following. “We’re excited to bring our first Kansas location of Mission Taco Joint to Park Place in Leawood. It isn’t just a place to eat, it’s a place to have a good time, and the live, work, play environment of Park Place is the perfect spot for our guests to do so” shares Adam Tilford, owner of Mission Taco Joint.
