We visited KC Power & Light District for the first time, and thought "What better way to start than with some margaritas and spicy munchies?" Mistake.
The District was beginning to get busy, but Tengo Sed wasn't. That should have tipped us off. We were seated on the patio. Because of the set-up of the enclosed KC Live area, it looks like you are outside, but you don't get the fresh air of outside, so it was surprisingly stuffy even on the patio. Nonetheless, that's nothing a few margaritas couldn't cure ... if we could just get some.
We waited over five minutes for a waitress, who slung menus, took quick drink orders, and vanished. Some ten minutes later, we spotted her walking to another area of the restaurant, gave a shout, and earned a visit during which she said she would check on our drinks and be right back. She was right back, only to inform us that the bartender was busy (doing what, we knew not, as the crowd was sparse), but she was sure our drinks wouldn't be long Another 5 minutes saw the return of our waitress with a huge tray, and drinks for every table on the patio, of which we were last. So, about 30 minutes after being seated, we got our first margaritas ... which I assume must have been poured from pitcher or one of those fruit punch machines. It was definitely prefab and lacking tequila. We had, in the interim, ordered some snacks, which eventually came as well ... also prefab tasting, and not up to even a Taco Bell standard. We paid our over-priced tab and were headed out the door. As we passed the bar area, we saw a young lady (waitress? bartender?) take a stirrer out of a pitcher, lick the liquid from it, put it back in the pitcher, and head off to a table. Yecchhh! One of our party asked a manager-looking type standing nearby if they saw that, and described what had happened, to be told that she must not seen it wrong.
Adios, Tengo Sed.
I hope a good bar and restaurant opens in the space when this one fails the rest of the way.
