The new Gordon Biersch in Leawood’s Park Place is officially open.  The grand opening was a benefit for the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired and raised more that $10,000.                                                     

I had the chance to attend this opening and though I like to focus on locally owned places, I was thrilled to attend this event to support such a great cause and enjoy the great food Gordon Biersch offers.

The menu at Gordon Biersch includes dishes such as their signature Garlic Fries, Southwest Egg Rolls, Gorgonzola Bone-In Ribeye, Barbecued Salmon, and the Grilled Chicken Cashew Salad (menu available). Gordon Biersch now also offers several low calorie options, most of which are less than 575 calories, including the Creole Chicken, Moroccan Salmon, Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry, Margarita Steak and more. Gordon Biersch also offers a kid’s menu available with entrées for only $4.95. A vegetarian menu is available upon request.

I attended the opening with my husband, sister, her spouse and their grand daughter. Below are all the yummy offerings we ordered and shared.

 Southwest Egg Rolls

 Burger Special of the Week – Blue Cheese Mushroom

Grilled Chicken Avocado Sandwich


The Garlic Fries were a favorite!
 BBQ Chicken Flatbread

Beer Battered Fish and Chips
 Bread Pudding
I have to say everything was delish!  I even liked the Beer Battered Fish and Chips. If you are a regular reader of this blog you know I am not a fish lover, so that is really saying something.
I am excited to go back and try their new low calorie menu as all this blogging has caught up with my waistline.
Gordon Biersch as two locations in Kansas City, one downtown in the Power and Light District, the other at the Park Place shopping center in Leawood.
Which location you choose, you are sure to have a great meal and a great time!

In Good Taste!
