What’s New?

SINCE LAST YEAR’S TASTE, A LOT. BY CHARLES FERRUZZA

ON THE COVER: delicatessen dessert, but its roots date back to the Italy of 160 B.C. Marcus Porcius Cato’s De re Rustica features a cake recipe, made with cheese, that sounds much like the modern version — especially the one on our Taste cover, baked for Accurso’s Italian Restaurant by owner Anthony Accurso’s grandmother. Angel Barelli herself still makes at least two cheesecakes a week for the restaurant. PHOTOGRAPHY BY ANGELA C. BOND

ansas City can never get enough of a good thing, even a name.

Over the past few years, two locations of the Texas-based Bar Louie chain – a neighborhood-bar concept — have opened (in the Power & Light District and at Zona Rosa), serving burgers and loaded tater tots. More recently, the Des Moines-based Louie’s Wine Dive found immediate success in Waldo, in a space that had been occupied by no fewer than three failed restaurants. That place serves reasonably priced vino alongside the kind of food you’d never see in a real dive. This town’s 12th Street was once legendary for its stretch of dives, but today the neighborhood is strictly upscale, helped in great part by the classy renovation of the President Hotel, which launched its new dining room, Providence New American Kitchen, last fall. Providence replaces the former Drum Room with a cozy, warm venue that emphasizes chef Eric Carter’s thoroughly modern models of traditional midwestern comfort dishes. We’re talking smoked meatloaf, barbecued pork belly and a decadent carrot cake. Another hotel restaurant in the same neighborhood, the Downtown Marriott’s MetropolitanKC, has given the former Lilly’s coffee shop a stylish makeover and a new menu created by chef Vincent Parades. Pastry chef Tracy Torres will make a custom carrot cake to order at her brand new Parkville bakery, the French Bee, but she stocks her glass display cases daily with fresh-baked scones, uff y squares of old-fashioned cinnamon-yogurt coffee cake, aky cinnamon swirls, cookies, and three kinds of delicious quiche. The desserts vary frequently at the brand-new Milbourn’s Food & Drink Company in the Northland. Like the rest of the home-style menu here, they’re inspired by traditional Midwestern recipes. Recent off erings have included chocolate cola cake, bread pudding with vanilla sauce, and apple turnovers. The two-month-old Clark’s American Caribbean Restaurant, in midtown, offers both American soul-food dishes (fried chicken, stewed oxtails) and the jerk chicken, curried goat and mojo chicken of the Caribbean (and tiny glazed lemon cakes). Chef John Smith of the Jacobson has been inuenced by an array of culinary cultures, and you can tell by reading the menu for this Crossroads addition. Early favorites: salt-andpepper shrimp and a baked macaroni gratin. The restaurant’s moniker comes from the plumbing supply company that used to occupy the space. After all, why give up a great name?

Staying Power

GOING FROM NEW TO CLASSIC REQUIRES LONGEVITY. BY CHARLES FERRUZZA

R

estaurants open and close with such frequency that any local operation able to last longer than a decade stands to become a classic — not just a place to eat but an institution. Accurso’s Italian Restaurant, just south of the Country Club Plaza, was already a classic neighborhood joint, serving 1950s Italian-American dishes. In 2009, when the former delicatessen was torn down at the ripe old age of 25, original owner Joe Accurso moved his restaurant down the street to a brand-new glass box. The current owner, 26-year-old Anthony Accurso, Joe’s cousin, is now in charge, bringing back the old mojo with a forceful menu and becoming a visible presence in the dining room. A personal touch has always been the signature of Starker’s Restaurant on the Plaza, which restaurateur Cliff Bath opened as Harry Starker’s in 1972. It became Starker’s after the late chef John McClure purchased the business 34 years later, and it continues to be one of the most sophisticated dining rooms in the city, thanks to a devoted and attentive staff. Another veteran space is Waldo Pizza, which opened the same year as The Lost Boys and Lethal Weapon and has been a continued on page 20 blockbuster ever since.

Midtown

Staying Power continued from page 18

The original d’Bronx deli and pizzeria opened on 39th Street in 1990, several years before restaurateur Ling Chang adapted a storefront just around the corner that had previously served as a small theater. Chang’s Genghis Khan Mongolian Grill created a diff erent kind of performance art: customers could prepare their own meals by mixing ingredients and condiments and then watch as agile cooks fried up the concoctions on a white-hot grill. It’s the ultimate fast casual. Brookside’s Charlie Hooper’s opened in 1980 as a neighborhood saloon, famous for its burger specials (patrons can still get a  rst-rate burger on Monday nights for $5) and general air of camaraderie. One of Kansas City’s oldest hotel properties, the Aladdin (today a Holiday Inn), opened in 1925 with one of the metro’s more swanky cocktail lounges, the Zebra Room. After the hotel’s 2007 renovation, someone had the good sense to rechristen the dining room after the pre-Prohibition bar. Talk about a classic. ■
