Succotash began in a humble hideaway in the Kansas City River Market. remember the food as fresh and playful, ie, lima bean hummus, fresh crispy salads, and a gorgeous multi-colored pastel cake with 10 or more layers.
Succotash has since moved to Dutch Hill in Midtown Kansas City. Either I have become jaded, or flavor just didn't follow to this new location. The setting is beautiful, but the novelty is gone. Breakfast was tasty, but most of the breakfast items appeared to be variations of the same ingredients. We ordered a "kitchen sink," which is a large combination of many things like eggs, potatoes, meat and sauce. Biscuits and gravy were pretty good. All-in-all, it was okay, but nothing to rave about.
When we left, the waitress gave us a couple of "free" brownies to try. They came out of the display fridge dry and absolutely tasteless. I think she was trying to get rid of them. Unfortunately, her generosity worked against her. I would be reluctant to order dessert there.
I might go back and try lunch some day. I hope the lima bean hummus is as good as I remember it when they served it down in the River Market. There are so many wonderful places to eat in Kansas City, I hesitate to spend time and money where I've had a less than stellar experience.
