Houston's Restaurant Kansas City

On Friday, after our disappointing turn away from 1924 Main, we headed for the Country Club Plaza looking for a place to eat. I had a hankering for the Grilled Chicken Salad and some of the e Spinach Artichoke Dip at Houston's. At 2:00 PM on a Friday the place was packed, I think that they are always packed. The service was a little slower than I remember, it took our server a while to get to our table for our order. We started with the Spinach Dip and it was good, just not as good as we remember it being. For $10, it should be the best Spinach Dip out there, but I don't think it is. We both ordered the Grilled Chicken Salad ($13) and again, it just didn't do it for me. It wasn't bad, it just did not taste like I remember it tasting. The dressing seemed a little bitter to me. Oh well, they say sometimes you just can't go back. We lived on the Plaza for awhile back in the mid 90's and ate there once a week. Maybe my taste buds have moved on as well. They are located at 4640 Wornall, phone number 816-561-8542.

I have never been to the wine country, only south of there. When you return, we should try to meet up at Michael Smith. Have fun!!

Houston's has the best Hawaiin rib-eye and those fries, YUMMY!

Mike, suggest to Lisa to visit V. Sattui and Robert Mondovi. Sattui has wine only available at the winery and Mondovi has a great tour. Also check out the champagne maker in Yountville, wonderful place for a meal. Also for great food, Mustard's. It will be on the left are you approach Napa.
