View Full Version : Any Planeteers familiar with downtown restaurants?

10-24-2006, 12:22 PM
I have some people in town that are staying at the Radisson downtown and we are looking for a good spot nearby that we can walk to that won't cost an arm and a leg, (no Peppercorn Duck Club) but won't be a dive bar, either (No Quaff). Something mid-range that is a decent sit-down place.

Anything out there that anybody would recommend? I was looking at Bulldog Restaurant (http://www.kcrestaurantguide.com/bulldog.htm) as a possibility, but reviews on the site seem kinda mixed. I also thought about Manny's, but I think somebody specifically asked for no Mexican food. Thanks for any ideas.

Savoy Grille, maybe? I hear good things about that place.

And there is always the Hereford House.

Savoy Grill
Majestic Steak House
Phillip's Chop House (Phillips Hotel)
(Italian Gardens is closed now...rats)
Or, take a 5-minute cab ride to Crown Center and do:
Fiorella's Jack Stack BBQ
Hereford House Steaks
Manny's (Mexican)

PF Changs in the Plaza. Not sure if that's close to the area you're staying at or not.
