I have to admit, few chefs on TV can “cook from the heart” like Lidia Bastianich. Everything about her is authentic… from her Italian roots to the mouth watering cuisine. Is it true that everything tastes better with an Italian accent?
I’ve watched Lidia’s shows on PBS for as long as I can remember and after each show I vow to make one of her dishes. She just makes it look so easy! Now that I live in Kansas City, I had to visit her restaurant… Lidia’s Kansas City. Here are some photos from our visit.
Her restaurant is contemporary but homey. High ceilings, earthy colors, white linen, and of course, incredible food! The front of the restaurant has a beautiful garden, which is the perfect first impression. Inside, you will find a beautiful fireplace, wood beamed ceilings and so much more!
We came for Sunday brunch with friends. The brunch was three courses. The anti-pasta and dessert were available on the self-serve buffet. However, you had to order off can you order cialis online the brunch menu for your main dish. I chose the octopus salad and absolutely LOVED it. It was a wonderful brunch and perfect fuel for the afternoon of museum hopping we had on the agenda.
