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
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
