I'm making an effort to keep this regularly updated (approximately weekly). Plus I do have to eat while studying for the bar so I decided that I would go out for a Kansas City Steak Night. I had some trouble finding a dining companion at the last minute. When it seemed hope for finding a last minute dinner companion was fading a highly respected and well loved member of my family stopped by to return my portable grill and wanted to go to dinner. The KC steak night adventure was on! He picked up the tab as well, making this the most cost effective steak night thus far (not to mention this is also the lowest cost steak night I have been to yet).
We both ordered our steaks medium rare with a side of sweet potato fries. You have a few side options here: salad, pasta salad, fries, cottage cheese and the aforementioned sweet potato fries.
My dining companion and I sat chatting and listening to the faux-intellectual hipster types poorly discuss the issues of the day with a great deal of self-righteousness*. Before we could get lost in hipster mediocrity, the steaks arrived, and very promptly I might add. *Note: I do realize the irony of my own self-righteous condemnation of the self-righteous hipsters here.
Onto the steak!
The sweet potato fries were great. Nice and crusty on the outside, and not overly seasoned. Overall this was a pretty good steak night, even if the cut of meat wasn't the best.
To sum up this KC Steak Night adventure:
- Restaurant: Harpo's
- Location: Westport - 4109 Pennsylvania, Kansas City, MO 64111
- Phone Number - (816) 573-3434
- Ambiance - One of the best outdoor patio's in town
- Steak - Superb job by the chef, bad job by the person in charge of ordering beef
- Service - good once they decided who would take our table
If you're out on a Wednesday and want a steak before you start drinking this is the place to go.
