1. Ombra

    Comments Off on Ombra

    The merchant city of Venice was renown for its vendors of all kinds. Frequently wine sellers would gather at the foot of the Clock Tower across from the square. During the day, merchants would adjust their stands to stay in the shadow of the bell tower. “Let’s go in the shade” became synonymous with “let’s go have a glass of wine,” and continues to be a popular Venetian phrase today!

    Ombra embodies that drive to eat and drink together; to commune. Seasonal offerings and local partnerships keep us all connected to our agricultural communities across Kansas City. Our food and beverage menus aim to foster your sense of culinary adventure, while supporting our local economy.

    ​From the Andes, to the Himalayas, from the Baltic Sea, to the Cape of Good Hope, we hope to take some mid-Western favorites and put an international twist on them!

Loose leaf teas are available by the ounce or as a single serve. They also feature delicious coffee, matcha and real fruit smoothies as well as bubble tea (our chai lattes & bubble teas are made from scratch and not a powder or liquid concentrate like most).

    Although food is not the emphasis of our business, Headrush takes pride in baking made-from-scratch scones, cookies and sweet breads. All of our baked goods include 50% stone ground whole wheat.

  6. Piropos

    Comments Off on Piropos

    You can dine in Buenos Aires with a stunning view of Kansas City.

    “If beauty were a sin you’ll never be forgiven.”

    That is a “piropo,” a flirtatious or poetic compliment to a woman. In Argentina, these expressions of admiration, when well-constructed, are not only traditional but even escalate to an art form.

    We call our Argentinian restaurant Piropos because we think of our food as a culinary compliment, even a artistic expression of our passion for the culture of Argentina.

    Perched in the rolling hills overlooking downtown Kansas City, Piropos Restaurant in Briarcliff Village recreates the warm, relaxed yet cosmopolitan atmosphere of Argentinian dining. Our food is prepared fresh and offered with outstanding service.

    Favorite menu highlights include empanadas, grilled meats, seafood, fresh salads, and vegetables with a touch of Spanish, Italian, French, and other ethnic foods. The food is simple, not particularly spicy.

    Piropos receives outstanding restaurant reviews by all of the local media and has been awarded the Best View, Best Food and Service in several publications.
