Within the pages of Unique Eats and Eateries of Kansas City you’ll not only learn why they decided to open their restaurants here but also the stories behind their food. Learn how a national magazine helped a legendary barbecue chef turn burnt ends from a free snack into a main course. Taste some of the most beautiful chocolates you’ll ever see created by a burnt-out chef on one last try at success.
