Restaurant Review: The Drop Bar & Bistro

Now that October is well upon us, I should back up a bit to discuss the delicious dinner we had to celebrate Evan's birthday back in September.  

You've already heard how much we love to celebrate birthdays - and this was no exception.   It was an evening filled with lies, deception and some tall, tall tales as 16 people gathered to surprise my totally sweet and completely unsuspecting  husband for a birthday dinner at The Drop, tucked away in the trendy Martini Corner neighborhood of KC. 

And he was totally surprised which made me all kinds of happy.   But what surprised me the most was the impressive menu and wide array of delicious - no scrumptious!- bruschetta that seems to be the crowning glory of the menu.  Let's take a closer look: 

We figured with our large group, we may as well try one of everything and that included: 

Brie, apple, balsamic cream, candied pecans
Smoked salmon, cream cheese, sliced almonds
Red grape, gorgonzola, port wine reduction
Goat cheese, citrus cranberry compote, browned butter
Genoa salami, peppadew, fresh basil
Oven-dried tomato, smoked mozzarella, basil pesto
Prosciutto, roasted garlic, romesco
Citrus-marinated shrimp, white bean, roasted garlic
Carpaccio of beef, porcini crème, capers, micro greens
Goat cheese, fig, pistachio

How do you argue with any of that?  Let me just say that between the two of us, we tried one of everything and each one was equally as amazing as the next.  Follow it up with an equally impressive dinner menu and this restaurant/bar just moved to a top spot on the list of places I do believe we will be going back to...soon.  

Check out these Caramelized Sea Scallops, Ensalada Verde and a delicious flatbread pizza I can't seem to find an official name for:

The Pitch named this restaurant one of the Top 5 Best New Restaurants in KC and we're thinking its well deserved.  But to be sure, we'll have to try every other new restaurant in Kansas City first.  Which sounds perfectly appetizing to me!
