KC’s Best strives to highlight the uniquely Kansas City-centric food culture, localism and sustainability through its publication.

Welcome! KC's Best Restaurants 2013 features the efforts of Jessica Burke — a foodie with a passion for writing and eating local—and five local food writers. We've come to you and Kickstarter with the hope of producing our inaugural edition. Thank you for your continued support!

KC'S BEST RESTAURANTS 2013

Food is a cultural magnifying glass. It reveals the heart of a city.

And, here in Kansas City, we are widely recognized as the barbeque capital of the world. But KC’s Best Restaurants 2013 also sheds light on the recently developed food culture springing from the city’s revitalization, encompassing new world-class attractions, architecture, sustainability and technology. In KC’s Best Restaurants 2013, two native foodies name 100 locally-owned restaurants as KC’s Best.

KC's Best

KC’s Best focuses on localism, sustainability and the unique Kansas City food culture. We recognize that localism is trending, but we believe that it is here to stay.

Why write this?

Due to Kansas City's sprawling geography and the fast-growing nature of its food scene, many locally-owned restaurants throughout the metro area go undiscovered. Through this comprehensive guidebook to the cuisine of Kansas City, we strive to inspire both locals and tourists to explore established favorites and hidden gems. 

We Can't Do It Without You

With your support, we'd love to bring this guidebook to life and complete the first chapter in our journey. All funds received will directly support the printing and delivery of the book for a Sept. 14 release.
