Kansas City Restaurant Week returns January 8-17

More than 170 metro restaurants unite for KC's premier dining event, featuring 10 days of exclusive carryout, delivery and dine-in specials

Kansas City, Mo.—Celebrating and supporting hundreds of local businesses, Kansas City Restaurant Week presented by Sysco returns to the metro, Jan. 8-17. From carryout and delivery services to traditional dine-in experiences, the 12th annual event will showcase the region’s culinary talents through special, multi-course menus at three affordable price tiers—$15, $35 and $45. As of Jan. 6, more than 170 restaurants have signed up to participate in the 10-day event.  

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas encourages residents to participate in the tradition while closely adhering to local community health guidelines.  

"Kansas City restaurants are foundational to showing who we are as a community,” said Mayor Lucas. “They not only provide us with one of the most essential forms of care … some of these establishments have brought communities together for generations, and serve as defining monuments of the neighborhoods they're in. All of these restaurants work hard every day to bring their own creative vision to Kansas City, highlighting our diverse food culture. I encourage all to show their support for our restaurants during Kansas City Restaurant Week.” 

Visit KC partnered with the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association (GKCRA) to create Kansas City Restaurant Week in 2010. In addition to celebrating and supporting Kansas City’s culinary scene at a time when it is needed most, 10 percent of proceeds for every Restaurant Week meal sold will benefit three local charities. In 2021, these causes include featured beneficiary The Don Bosco Centers, as well as the foundations of Visit KC and the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association—non-profit organizations dedicated to workforce development within tourism and hospitality, two industries hit particularly hard by the pandemic.  

Don Bosco Centers Executive Director Mo Orpin says the organization’s need is now greater than ever, from championing the region’s elderly and immigrant communities to executing one of the largest Meals on Wheels programs in existence. 

“We at Don Bosco Centers are delighted to be the featured beneficiary of Restaurant Week again this year. Feeding people and helping others is one of our missions and so it’s a perfect fit to team with Visit KC and the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association for this annual event,” said Orpin. “A major focus of ours is to provide senior citizens and adults with disabilities a daily check-in and a hot, nutritious meal. The proceeds from Restaurant Week help ensure that they can stay safe and healthy during these difficult times and well beyond the pandemic.” 

Over the course of its first 11 years, more than $2.7 million has been raised by restaurants and diners for local causes, including significant contributions to groups such as Harvesters, BoysGrow, the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kansas City.  

As of press time, 173 Kansas City restaurants are signed up to participate in the 10-day promotion and a full list of participating businesses and sponsors follows. For more information about Kansas City Restaurant Week—including menus, reservations and a free mobile app—visit KCRestaurantWeek.com
