For many years, Kansas City’s primary restaurant spots were downtown and the Country Club Plaza. But times have changed. And over the last 30 years, the destinations for good eating have expanded to include most of the outlying suburban cities – from Prairie Village to Lee’s Summit and Liberty to Martin City. Kansas City diners can hop in the car and travel anywhere in the metro to find unexpected culinary treasures.

Friday on Central Standard, Charles Ferruzza and the Food Critics will guide you to bistros, diners, cafes, and luncheonettes on all points of the metro map. Supping in the suburbs is where it’s at – so join us on our journey, and let us know where your favorite food finds are outside of the Kansas City, Mo. city limits.
