Foodies, this one is for you. If there’s one thing Kansas City locals look forward to at the beginning of a New Year, it’s Kansas City Restaurant Week (KCRW). For those of you whose New Year’s Resolutions revolved around “eating healthier” or avoiding sweets and rich foods, we respect that! But, be ready for those resolutions to take a backseat to KCRW January 11th-20th.
Kansas City Restaurant Week is the one week of the year where people can come out and enjoy specialty meals handcrafted and whipped up by some of the top chefs in the KC metro (and in the country, if you ask us). You can hit up some of your favorite “go-to’s”, or choose to venture out and dine at some of the new restaurants across the city. Wherever you go, specially priced lunch and dinner menus will be available with multi-course options for $15 or $33.
Avenues Bistro has been an active participant of KCRW over the last several years, and is looking forward to serving up some of our best dishes to our friends in the heart of Brookside once again.
During Restaurant Week, we will have 3-course lunch options for $15 and dinner options for $33. For the first course, you can choose either soup or a hand-tossed garden or caesar salad. The second course lunch entrées range from (but are not limited to) filet medallions, grilled salmon, and chicken scaloppine. For the second course dinner entrées, a few of your options are filet medallions & crab cake, lobster ravioli, and braised short rib. Last but certainly not least, this brings us to the third entrée — dessert! You can choose from among a few of our Avenues Classics including: chocolate gateau, cheesecake or Rum Chata Cake.
If you’re looking to indulge a little extra (because why not?), we do have a few add ons starting at $5 and up to compliment your 3-course meal. Try our famous bacon-wrapped dates, crab & artichoke dip for, or spend $10 more to top things off with the shrimp cocktail!
Take a look at our full lunch and dinner menus to see other specialty dishes we’ll be offering!
One more thing, we’ll also have a $15 brunch available BOTH weekends during KCRW! This menu features $7 breakfast cocktails and $10 bottomless mimosas (up to 2 hours with purchase of food), our egg specialties, the benedicts, chicken & waffles, avenues burgers and more! Check out the brunch menu to see what other Avenues favorites you have to choose from!
Please note: while several restaurants participate throughout Kansas City, we highly recommend making reservations ahead of time to ensure your night is booked and ready to be enjoyed! You can get a head start on booking your spot at Avenues.
KCRW is more than just enjoying great meals at a great value. The restaurants that take part in this special week commit to donating 10% of sales from each meal to benefit local causes that help build up our community and keep it going strong. All donations raised during the 2019 event will benefit Boys and Girls Club of Kansas City, Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation, and Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association Educational Foundation.
This week only comes once a year, so be sure and make the most of it! Post and tag Avenues in your pictures on social using the hashtags #KCRW, #kcrestaurantweek and #avenuesbistro.
