The Dining Experience: At Home

Executive Chef Laura Comer has cooked up a series of six menus, with special selections for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Or choose from delicious seasonally-inspired meals. Each three-course meal is crafted to be finished and heated at home. Easy, contactless pickup takes place on the Kauffman Center’s south drop-off drive.
