Best French Fare in KCMO


Kansas City is a famed foodie town, but oftentimes French cuisine is overlooked in favor of BBQ and southern comfort food. Try out iPhotower Vietnamese-French Bistro for a unique fusion offering, complemented perfectly with cocktails, tea and more. Whether you’re craving pho or foie, this is the place to satisfy every craving imaginable.

Le Fou Frog somehow blends upscale French dining with a very unpretentious atmosphere. If you’re lucky, the chef will serenade you. Otherwise, choose from a variety of foie gras-infused menu items, steak au Ppoivre, filet le fou with lobster meat and a cheese sauce, or escargot with champagne and tomatoes.

Frou Frou for Two?

Charisse KC fuses French and American fare in a trendy bistro environment. Here, you’ll be treated to French onion soup, pomme frites, and of course beef bourguignon with a potato puree and delicate onion, carrot and parsnip shavings. Try the flank steak frites or golden trout to eat like the locals.

Westport Café and Bar is a hot spot for late-night dining. Try the roasted fennel soup, pea ravioli with lemon brown butter or the escargot with herbed butter to start. Braised short ribs, grilled arctic char and crispy chicken confit are a few favorite entrees. No matter which French fare you try in KCMO, you’re sure to be delighted.
