The Dining Experience


The Dining Experience at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts offers modern American cuisine prior to most evening performances at the Center. The Dining Experience has a seasonal three-course dinner menu for $39 per person, as well as a selection of small plates. Guests may enjoy a seasonal craft cocktail and curated wine selection.

Prior to select Kauffman Center Presents performances, enjoy special four-course dinners designed by award-winning Executive Chef Laura Comer. The four-course dinners are $60-$65 per person and include a wine or beer pairing with each course.
