I love to do something special for Valentine's Day dinner. While I have tons of favorite restaurants in Kansas City that I choose for my birthday or specials nights with friends I haven't seen in a while, I view Valentine's Day as a time to try something new with a prix fixe menu prepared by some of the best chefs in our community.
If you're like me and want to take the pressure off deciding what to order and just trust the pros this Valentine's Day, here are several restaurants offering magnificent menus that will impress both you and your date.
Come for a seasonally inspired, locally sourced four-course prix fixe menu—all for just $125 per person. Glasses of sparkling wine and amuse bouche are included.
The evening will feature a special Valentine's Day fixed-price menu from 5:30–8:30 p.m. created by Chef Rick Mullins, including three courses priced at $55 per person. Purchase recommended wine pairings for an additional $20 per person or any of the Café’s wine, beer or cocktail selections at the listed price.
With a passion for local, fresh food, the culinary team regularly features specials based on what is growing in the gardens or found at Kansas City farmers' markets. Enjoy the Valentine's Day four-course meal for $65 per person with an optional $30 wine pairing.
