MBBers take on Kansas City Restaurant Week

A few reviews and recommendations.

Read MoreWe asked Andrea for one recommendation and we got four ... she's always so helpful. Anyway, here ya go ...

Osteria IL Centro is so consistently good - cutest little nook of a restaurant with amazing service and Italian food. Go there whether it's Restaurant Week or otherwise.

The American Restaurant is an event - amazing food, service and awesome '80's cruise ship decor (don't let that detract from the's world class.)

Story in Prairie Village is so, so good. Sleek, modern environment with great service and delicious food.

Michael Smith in the Crossroads is another good one to hit up during Restaurant Week.

Joel, a connoisseur of meat and cheese, also has a few suggestions ...

My favorite type of food is Italian and hands down the best in KC is Accurso's. To compliment the amazing food is great service, excellent bar selection and award-worthy desserts.

Or, if you haven't been to them before, you can't go wrong with Tasso's and breaking plates or Westside Local and true farm to market.

And, although not on the list, the chili at MBB Chili Fridays is pretty tasty ... reservations are impossible to get though!

Check out all the restaurants participating in 2014.
