To get a real flavor for an authentic KC old/established and now new/hip/happening neighborhood - come to the Brookside area of KC. No box stores or chain restaurants. AND don't miss Julian's for lunch or dinner! Chef/Owner Celina Tio has competed on national food network shows e.g. The Next Iron Chef. But, what's most important is her great, low key neighborhood location and fabulous food. I call it chic comfort food -- my husband calls it fantastic! Great for dinner with friends, romance, business - all work well and this comfortable great place!
