There’s a relatively new tapas bar in downtown Kansas City Saturday night. One of the top meals I’ve had this year; simply phenomenal. It’s called JP Wine Bar and Coffee House and they do flights of wine in addition to wonderful small plates of food.
We were with a big group; as a result we got to try nearly everything on the menu, probably ten different small plates. All but one (crab cakes, which were just okay) were wonderful. Coffee-crusted tenderloin, lamb chops served over lamb stew, salmon over beets, scallops…it was great.
Word has it that the former Otto’s in downtown Columbia is set to become a tapas bar. If it is half as good as JP I’ll be a happy and frequent customer.
