Room 39-Seasonal American Food

In November 2004, Andrew Sloan and Ted Habiger opened their first restaurant,  Room 39.  Three years later a second location in Leawood,  Kansas was born.  Combining seasonal ingredients and exceptional value with a warm atmosphere and friendly service,  Room 39 has become a fixture in Kansas City for breakfast,  lunch,  and dinner. Breakfast and lunch are casual affairs with a dining room of beautifully handcrafted tables and simple yet elegant food such as our steak and eggs benedict,  fresh pasta,  and our popular half-pound burger.  Dinners are more elegant but still a great value with white tablecloths,  an award-winning wine list and a $39 tasting menu that changes daily using our farmer-driven produce and meat. The chefs of Room 39 believe the best tasting food comes from local farmers who use sustainable harvesting and growing practices ensuring the land is better off than before.

Smokin’ Fresh Streetside BBQ

Smokin’ Fresh is Kansas City’s only organic barbecue. We buy organic and all-natural first and try to get as much of it locally as possible. It is part of our mission statement to support local organic farmers and local small businesses so as to support our local economy. Buying local also makes us more environmentally friendly by creating less demand for products transported into the area. When sourcing meat, we look for traditionally-raised (free-range, grass-fed), hormone-free meat that has been raised without prophlylactic use of antibiotics. When sourcing produce, we look for non-gmo produce that is grown using traditional and organic methods (though not necessarily certified organic) without pesticides. We support farmers who use sustainable methods and don’t pollute water and earth. As an all-natural and organic mobile café, Smokin’ Fresh Streetside BBQ offers 4 to 5 select items from our full menu on any given day.  We post our menu of the day and locations on Facebook and Twitter. Because we use organic ingredients, our menu selections will necessarily change with the seasonal produce available to us. The best way to find out what we are serving is to follow us on facebook and/or twitter.

Story

 3931 W. 69th Terrace
Prairie Village, KS 66208
(913)236-9955

There is, of course, a story behind the name “Story”. It revolves around three themes that are a part of Chef Thorne-Thomsen’s beliefs. “The name story is meant to signify that I’m a chef inspired and motivated by ingredients. I try to source ingredients carefully, local when I can, but whether local or not, I always try to find the best, freshest etc., and the more time I spend looking for ingredients, the more I wind up knowing about them, where they are grown, pastured, fished, etc. Frequently my imagination goes to work on those details and projects or produces a landscape or seascape, people at work in it; a “story” of sorts about or behind a particular ingredient begins to shape itself in my mind. The name also refers to the “story” behind any given dish on the menu, why certain items are paired or not, where the idea came from or how it evolved. Lastly “story” refers to the meal itself, the diner’s experience. Is it a special occasion, an anniversary or birthday for instance; is that the “story”? Is it friends in town, a first date etc. Sometimes, if the food, service and atmosphere are good, then the experience itself is the story.”

1924 Main St.
Kansas City, MO 64108
(816) 471-2177

The great cuisines of the world were not created in lush palaces in giant cosmopolitan centers, but in places very much like Kansas City. Rich culinary traditions were formed in medium sized cities, in the heartland of various countries, with access to farmland, forests and prairies. In Italy, this was in Parma, Modena and Bologna in Emilia-Romagna; in Mexico it was in places like Oaxaca and Puebla; in France, it was in Lyon and Dijon in Burgundy. We believe that Kansas City is in a prime position to develop a cuisine that speaks to its people, celebrates the bounty of our region, and can be unique and special. The food at the Rieger Hotel seeks to move in this direction. We believe our food compliments the look and ambiance of the space, the style of service, the feel of the Crossroads neighborhood and the history of the Rieger Hotel building itself. The menu is approachable, rustic, soulful and delicious. We are proud to focus on quality ingredients, sound techniques, and connections between where our food comes from, the people who prepare and serve it, and the guests who come to enjoy it. We source the best local, seasonal ingredients and highlight the excellence and uniqueness of many of these products. Whether you’re a young couple that just wants a snack at the bar, a family on a budget, a group of adventurous eaters with exotic tastes and huge appetites, or executives on an expense account, we have something for you. The dining experience at the Rieger is fun and comfortable, and our menus echo that experience.
