Best Lunch Deal in Downtown KC

Posted on April 10, 2018 by under Food and Drink.    

If you haven’t been to Tavernonna inside Hotel Phillips, you have to check it out. They probably have one of the best lunch deals downtown. For $10, you get soup or salad, a half sandwich or pasta dish, drink, and gelato. My favorite thing to get is the spaghetti with a Nonna’s meatball (extra). The meatball is kind of expensive but it is huge and delicious. It is worth every penny.

My friend Lesa and I had the opportunity to eat lunch together at Tavernonna last week. Here are a few pictures.


When I’ve had the $10 lunch special in the past, I’ve gotten a Caesar salad. However, it was super cold out last week so soup sounded good. The were serving a very green broccoli cheddar soup that day.


I had the spaghetti with a Nonna’s meatball.


Green must have been the color of the day because the gelato flavor they were serving was pistachio. It was amazing. I’m not sure if the gelato is a new thing that they’re doing because this was the first time I’d ever had it with lunch.

Now that I know that a scoop of gelato is part of the lunch deal, I may never eat lunch anywhere else.


Lesa originally asked for the smoked prime rib dip sandwich with a side of fries but she didn’t care of the dressing that they put in the sandwich so she ended up getting the spaghetti with the meatball as I did also.

Lunch was super fab. I’m hoping to hit Tavernonna again for lunch when I’m back in Kansas City next week.
