Kansas City, Mo.
There’s a sense of whimsy about this little burger joint in Kansas City’s Westport neighborhood. It’s in the vintage architecture, originally built to house a White Castle restaurant in the 1930s. It’s in the sweets on offer, including a handful of “grown-up milkshakes” and 28 bottled sodas. And it’s certainly on the menu, with inventive burgers like Au Poivre, a pepper-crusted burger with green peppercorn sauce, or the $100 Burger, topped with foie gras butter and stuffed with red wine-braised short ribs (and which will not, in fact, cost you $100). Complementing such playful dishes is a list of 110 beers that’s heavy on old standbys like Guinness and Harp, as well as out-there picks like Boulevard Long Strange Tripel and Hitachino Nest Sweet Stout. 4710 Jefferson St.
Their fact-checker missed a few things -- like that they're no longer in Westport (the address is correct though) and I don't think the White Castle note is right either (Westport Flea Market maybe?) but they at least were right in that it is a great burger and beer place.
It's great to see Kansas City noted for its great batch of local restaurants...and beer too for that matter.
