We are always looking for new, fun places to go for date night. For me, I try to schedule at least one date per month with my husband. We can get stuck going to the same places over and over, but this spring we are setting a goal to try new places.
We are excited to introduce you to three restaurants, all within the same area that can make your upcoming dates fun and easy!
BRUNCH DATE: Keep it casual and try a morning brunch date! We love the idea of going to brunch and then doing a fun activity afterward. Sometimes, daytime dates are the most fun!
Enjoy the finest and freshest breakfast, brunch and lunch in Kansas City, served up daily at eggtc. The perfect place to spend a morning with friends or retreat to a cozy booth for a weekend rendezvous, eggtc. is Kansas City’s favorite breakfast spot where you can enjoy freshly-squeezed juices, delicious Parisi coffee drinks, build your own omelets, crepes, pancakes and waffles – not to mention made to order quiche, homemade yogurt and granola. And don’t miss eggtc.’s delicious pastries and daily fresh cut fruit. If it’s lunch fare you crave, eggtc. also offers tasty signature sandwiches, garden fresh salads and homemade soups – all prepared with choice, fresh ingredients.
In the mood to celebrate – or maybe you’re an overnight shift worker? Either way you can enjoy eggtc.’s mimosa’s, Bloody Mary’s and full bar with reverse Happy Hour.
Dine at either of eggtc.’s two locations - 51st and Main or Shawnee - and taste for yourself why eggtc. is “All it’s cracked up to be!”
NIGHT OUT: Need a fun, fancy and delicious night out? Get a babysitter, put your phones away and enjoy an evening of conversation and great food.
Osteria Il Centro is known throughout Kansas City for their delicious northern Italian cuisine as well as an intimate, welcoming atmosphere that provides a delicate combination of sophistication and comfort – perfect to impress an out of town client, but with enough romantic ambiance to celebrate a night out with a special date. The menu at Osteria Il Centro offers a fine dining experience with exceptional Italian cuisine. Regular guests rave about the Chicken Walnut Pasta, delicately prepared Lamb Chops, “addictive” Cannelloni, marinated Atlantic Salmon and meat free Eggplant Parmesan – all topped with house-made sauces. Recently the restaurant review professionals at Zagat awarded Osteria Il Centro a 28 out of 30 food score, making OIC the highest rated Italian restaurant in Kansas City – and one of the highest Italian food rankings in the country.
The full bar at OIC includes top shelf vodkas, bourbons, cordials and specialty drinks. Osteria Il Centro is also becoming increasingly well known for an extensive wine list, with over 1,000 reserve bottles and a Reserve List that has repeatedly won the prestigious Wine Spectator “Best of Award of Excellence” designation. Love wine? The OIC Wine Club has over 500 members and features regular tastings with visiting winemakers from around the world.
Visit Osteria Il Centro at 51st and Main to see why Kansas Citians agree this is the place to go “where the food and wine are so good, it actually improves the conversation!”
CASUAL & FUN: Sometimes you want to keep it casual. Pizza, apps and beer always make for a fun and low-key date.
At Minsky’s Pizza, “Gourmet, and going to stay that way” is more than just a slogan. It’s Minsky’s promise to always use the freshest ingredients, including hand-rolled dough, generous portions of lean, quality meats, fresh-cut vegetables, and 100% Wisconsin mozzarella to create “Kansas City’s Best Pizza.” The expansive menu also features hand-crafted hot sandwiches, delicious calzones, tangy pastas, garden fresh salads, great appetizers (try the wings!), and taste-tempting desserts. Have a special dietary need? Minsky’s is happy to offer a broad gluten-free menu and also Daiya “Deliciously Dairy Free” cheese and salad dressing options.
Locally-owned and operated, Minsky’s has been Kansas City’s favorite neighborhood pizzeria for over 40 years. Visit any of the 17 locations throughout the Kansas City Metro area and Lawrence to experience Minsky’s Zagat Award-winning gourmet pizzas. Or, order online at Minskys.com and we’ll bring Minsky’s – hot and delicious – from our ovens straight to your front door. Dine in, carry out or delivery direct to your door, after one bite you’ll understand why Minsky’s has been voted “Kansas City’s Best Pizza” time and time again!
