A Week of Daily Restaurant Specials for Dine-Out Nights
Why cook when you have a weeklong schedule of the best restaurant in Kansas City with cheap daily specials?
The Bar West Plaza
Betcha didn’t know Meatless Mondays were a thing. At The Bar West Plaza, this signature night has a devoted following. Pop in for “fish” sticks (tofu fried to a crispy golden brown, served with a vegan tartar sauce), portobello mushroom sliders, the popular Impossible Burger (boasting a hearty veggie patty) and even a vegan grilled cheese.

Tuesdays are for tacos — everyone knows that. But nobody knows it better than Bonito Michoacán, where you can get authentic street tacos for just $1 each all day long at both locations in Olathe and Kansas City, Kansas. Can’t choose between the carnitas, barbacoa, pastor, chicharrón and chicken tacos? Get all five. You’ll thank us for the tip.

Treat yourself to some Southern-inspired cooking on Wednesday nights at Story, where four pieces of perfectly fried chicken, savory bread pudding, parmesan gravy and a seasonal vegetable — think brussels sprouts or grilled carrots — will set you back $19. Bonus: Glasses of sparkling are just $8 all night.

Michael Smith Restaurant
Kick off the weekend early at Michael Smith Restaurant, where Thursday is La Grande Notte. This is where Chef Michael Smith shows off the Italian cuisine he’ll be serving nightly once his forthcoming restaurant Farina opens. “The Big Night” features a four-course, house-made pasta tasting menu for $40 a person, and all Italian wines are half off. If you were looking for an excuse to carb-load, this is it.

Few things are as satisfying as a plump piece of cod, beer-battered and deep-fried to sunshiney perfection and served with crisp, hot, salty fries. At Cafe Europa in Crestwood and Union Hill, you don’t have to wait for Lent to roll around to enjoy this perfect plate.

A sandwich from Bay Boy is never a bad idea, but bring your buddies to this tiny West Plaza shop on Saturday and bask in the praises they will lump upon you when they sink their chompers into the El Jefe. This beast — smoked pulled pork, honey ham, Swiss cheese, thick pickles and hot pepper sauce between Bay Boy’s magnificent Dutch Crunch bread — is the Cubano twist you never knew you needed.
