Kansas City is full of tastes and tastemakers. With Today’s Special — our new video series with KCPT’s Flatland — we recently had the chance to explore just a few of the drinks and eats that require your full gustatory attention. Over the next five weeks, we’ll take you inside the process behind some amazing bites and sips during your Thursday lunch hour. Watch the video above and then pop by Flatland for the back story.
This first episode begins with a sandwich, the Z-man at Joe’s Kansas City, that is on its way (might already be called) an iconic two-hander. We’ll also tell you the tale of Boulevard’s beer backpacks at Kauffman Stadium, the pork tenderloin sliders at The Rieger, the Hemingway Daiquiri at Julep (featuring special guest Christopher Elbow) and Oddly Correct’s hop toddy. We hope you enjoy Today’s Special.
