Brian and I finally got around to trying Milkfloat, a cute little coffee and dessert place in Delano. Here are some pictures.

While I’m sad that my work assignment in Kansas City has come to a screeching halt, I am grateful that I don’t have to spend most of the week there anymore because it means more time to explore our wonderful city with Brian.

There are some many new restaurants and businesses that have opened in the last few months. I feel like we are completely falling behind on checking all of these amazing places out and experiencing what each has to offer. Now that I’m spending all of my time in Wichita, I can’t wait to visit all of these new places that I haven’t been to yet – one place at a time.

Anton’s Taproom Round 2

Posted on May 7, 2017 by under Food and Drink.    

The first time I had the opportunity to try Anton’s was with Selena a few months ago. This last time was with Michelle, during our final week in KC.

Untitled

We were seated upstairs this time, which I didn’t even know existed.

Untitled

It’s pretty neat up there, except neither Michelle nor I knew what the heck those things hanging from the ceiling are supposed to be. LOL.

Untitled

I love all the exposed brick, rustic ambiance, and decor.

Untitled

Michelle and I both had the filet mignon. She had a 4-oz one and I had a 6-oz one.

Untitled

I remember getting a 4-oz one the last time and, after asking for it to be well done, not having much of it left. The filet shrank a lot.

Untitled

Michelle had grilled cauliflower for her side dish.

Untitled

Not one to count calories, I opted for the mac and cheese.

Untitled

Dinner was quite satisfying.

Untitled

Before we left, I took a picture of the space above the butcher shop. They had two long dining tables up there. I thought it would be perfect for small private parties and other events like that.

I’m not much of a steak-eater but I do like Anton’s. I highly recommend it. I would totally go there again next time I’m in the area and get a hankering for some steak.

Livingston’s Diner – New Location

Posted on April 26, 2017 by under Food and Drink.    

Pictures from our first visit to Livingston’s Diner since they moved to their new location. They’re now in the old Cinnamon’s Deli location at Cambridge Market (by our old townhouse).

Untitled

One can’t go to Livingston’s and not get cinnamon rolls.

Here are some food pics…

The best part about that Saturday (the Saturday before Easter), besides our delicious breakfast, is running into the Easter Bunny at the Andover YMCA.

Charisse KC

Posted on April 26, 2017 by under Food and Drink.    

I had the opportunity to try a new restaurant in Kansas City a few weeks ago, Charisse. It’s a French restaurant that’s just a short walk from the One KC office. A couple of coworkers and I walked over there a few days ago. They’d dined there before but it was my first time.

Untitled

I had a crepe for lunch yesterday from Lolo’s Crepes so that made me think of Charisse. I had the chicken crepe when I was there.

Untitled

Both of my colleagues had the flank steak. One opted for the truffle fries while the other opted for the sautéed vegetables.

Untitled

The food was pretty good but the service was slow. Also, the restaurant staff were very French-like in the haughty way that they walked about the restaurant and interacted with guests. I guess they were trying to keep things consistent. LOL.

Seriously, though, it’s a pretty good place to eat if you don’t mind the snobby service. I liked that it was far enough away from the office that you felt like you were getting away but close enough to be within walking distance. I also liked that it was a nice dining experience as opposed to fast food. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area.

National Cheese Fondue Day

Posted on April 24, 2017 by under Food and Drink.    

Untitled

Did you all know that April 11 is National Cheese Fondue Day? I had no idea either until we heard about it the night that Lesa (one of my coworkers in Kansas City) and I went to dine at the Melting Pot that evening.

Untitled

Our table, which incidentally is also her usual table (she eats there once a week), was next to their massive wine room.

Untitled

We started with the Quattro Formaggio, which happens to be Lesa and also our server’s favorite flavor of cheese fondue.

Untitled

We opted for the basic seasoned court bouillon which is the complimentary cooking method. You have to pay extra for the other (fancier) types but this one was perfectly fine. I found it aromatic and flavorful.

Untitled

These are the different meats I chose. I basically did a third regular sirloin, a third teriyaki-marinated sirloin, and a third Memphis-style dry rub pork.

Untitled

Lesa did half and half of the two types of sirloin, regular and teriyaki.

Untitled

They also give you a variety of vegetables and sauces to go with the meats.

Untitled

We were both really stuffed at the end so we skipped the chocolate fondue finale, which I’m told is the best part. I guess this will be a good reason to bring Brian there next time we are in the area.
