Kansas City, MO – The Dining Experience at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts debuted its new fall dining menu earlier this month. The menu will be available through the end of November 2017.

The Dining Experience offers a three-course dinner menu for $35 per person, as well as a selection of small plates for lighter fare.  Guests are able to choose one item from each course for the three-course menu. Guests may also enjoy a seasonal craft cocktail and curated wine selection.

Executive Chef Laura Comer’s seasonal dinner menu makes the most of the late-summer produce, with dishes featuring heirloom tomato, sweet corn and fresh herbs. Local food providers are highlighted in the menu, including cheese from Green Dirt Farm Creamery, greens from Prairie Birthday Farm, and pork from Circle B Ranch.
