The Dining Experience at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts will offer a special three-course dinner menu for $33 on performance nights during Kansas City Restaurant Week, January 11-20, 2019. Reservations are available starting at 5 p.m. Special for Restaurant Week, guests not attending a performance can take advantage of later seating times. Make a reservation on Open Table.

The Restaurant Week menu offers a choice of three starters, an entree selection of Smoked Circle B Ranch Pork Loin, and a dessert course of Sticky Toffee Pudding. Executive Chef Laura Comer crafted the menu to offer elevated takes on comforting dishes, and to provide options not currently available on the Dining Experience’s seasonal winter dinner menu. That menu, with four additional entrees and three additional desserts, will also be available during Restaurant Week at the regular $37 price.

Ten percent of sales from each Restaurant Week meal benefits three local charities: The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, The Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation, and the GKCRA Education Foundation.
