Delicious, fresh, Farm-to-Table food. Good atmosphere as well! It is possible to get in without reservation, but I would make a reservation just to be safe. It is a bit pricey, about a $17 average. The vegetable risotto is phenomenal!

We are from St. Louis and visit KC a few times a year. Looking for a new place since Julian closed and came here based on TA reviews. Unfortunately, one of the most disappointing meals we've had in KC (and we're not that fussy!). Cocktails:...More

I went to 'blunch' at Westside Local as part of a bachelorette party. We made a reservation and they were very accommodating of our large party size. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. I had the biscuits and gravy...More

We stumbled upon this restaurant, hidden in the westside area. They have an exceptional beer menu! The food was excellent, unique and reasonably priced. I think all the waiters must be hipsters, they were all very trendy and cool!

We have been here a couple of times - once for dinner and another for take-out. The food was so good. The fries are fantastic! Great dinner or lunch spot.

We visited for the first time on Mother's Day. It was spectacular. The restaurant says they serve "blunch" (rather than "brunch"), but it doesn't matter what they call it, I call it delicious. I was even pleasantly surprised by the carrot juice Bloody Mary cocktail....More
