Kansas City is full of tastes and tastemakers. With Today’s Special — our new video series with KCPT’s Flatland — we recently had the chance to explore just a few of the drinks and eats that require your full gustatory attention. Over the course of five weeks (this is week three), we’ll take you inside the process behind some amazing bites and sips during your Thursday lunch hour. Watch the video above and then pop by Flatland for the back story.
In this episode, we talked with The Rieger’s Howard Hanna about the inspiration for the pork tenderloin sliders on his Happy Hour menu. The dish served at 1924 Main turns out to be a mash-up of fine dining from across the pond and a hidden gem of a luncheonette right here in Kansas City.
The past two episodes featured Boulevard’s beer backpack at The K and the Z-man at Joe’s Kansas City. We’ll also tell you the tale of the Hemingway Daiquiri at Julep (featuring special guest Christopher Elbow) and Oddly Correct’s hop toddy. We hope you enjoy Today’s Special.
