Jenny's Pick: Date Night at Rye on the Plaza
Written by: Jenny
Mama doesn't get out much. So, apparently Rye in Leawood has been a 'thing' for a while now. But, I live out north and with two little kiddos -- dinner out is usually Chick Fil A or if we're really gettin' fancy... Panera. HA!
So, the hubs and I had a date night (with a couple we adore) the other night. We decided to DO IT UP! We headed to the Plaza for dinner at this nifty little place called Rye.
OH. MY. FRIED CHICKEN. This is my new jam.
Loved the ambience. But... back to the fried chicken. It's the greatest thing I've ever tasted. I found out that it's no joke either. It takes a full 24 hours to prepare -- to get it just right. Oh, and did they ever get it just right. It's to die.
Matthew figured we shouldn't both order the same thing! So, we also had their filet. Look, I've eaten a lot of steak in my lifetime. But, this filet was honestly one of the best -- if not, THE best!
Dessert? Yes please. They're known for their pie. Aaaaaand now I know why. Had a slice of chocolate peanut butter pie that nearly brought me to tears.
Best date night ever and without a doubt, best. meal. ever!
Highly recommend Rye. Two thumbs up. And, my thumbs are unusually big... but that's another story...
