Fresh. Seasonal. Local. Delicious.
You will get all of this and more at Room 39; it is one of my favorite spots in KC.
I am a big fan of supporting local restaurants and this place does it right. They work with area farmers and producers to get the freshest ingredients at the peak of the season. I am telling you, once you start eating this way it is hard to go back. Everything just tastes better.
I love the seasonal concept that Room 39 uses by making dishes according to what is in season. I feel like a kid at Christmas every time I go, wondering what the Chef has cooked up. Literally!!
One of my favorite dishes is the Gnocchi. (Go figure…If you have read some of the other posts here on the blog you will realize I love gnocchi). It has bacon and roasted cauliflower in it. The flavors blend beautifully.
I have also had their lamb, duck and steak. Everything is always prepared perfectly. My husband got this grilled romaine salad one of the last times we were there, it was out of this world. The grilling gave it a whole other level of flavor, who knew lettuce could taste like that?!
Then there are the desserts.
They have these Goat Cheese Beignets with a Caramel Soup. I can’t even describe how good these are, you just need to taste them for yourself. We have also had a Banana Bread French Toast that was great too.
Everything I have ever had there has been unbelievably good. It is one place in KC that cannot be missed!
Room 39 offers a great tasting menu. It is 4 courses of their amazing upscale food for only $39.00. Talk about one heck of a deal!

The Midtown locations is:

I recommended Room 39 to be featured on the show Check, Please! Kansas City and it was. The show airs on our local PBS station KCPT on Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. It is a great show that features different restaurants around KC. You may watch this or other episodes online http://cove.kcpt.org/video/1481393363/#
