A Casual Neighborhood Joint
The BelfryThe James Beard award- winning chef is surprisingly accessible, an attitude that translates into this sunny spot's approach to dining and drinking. A pocket-sized menu of feel-good food ("What mama never made you, but wanted to," Tio jokes), places comforting, beer-friendly plates of chicken nachos, judiciously slathered in gooey Manchego cheese and sherry onions, alongside lip-smacking spins on KC classics like Berkshire pork ribs, served with fries and hoppy pickles (sweet, briny cukes hopped with Citra and Cascade). Early risers can scoop up stuffed croissants before heading to work.
An equally thoughtful list of 20 taps covers all the bases, from Deschutes' juicy Fresh Squeezed IPA to Odell Udderly Cherry milk stout-Tio, a certified Cicerone, marks her personal favorites on the chalkboard with a heart. But to push this place into serious beer geekdom, The Belfry doubles down with interactive events, like a recent beer dinner with New Belgium's Eric Salazar, where guests customized their own sour ale blend to take home in small growlers.
