Kansas City Restaurant Week launches significant website updates based on user feedback from 2015 event


More than 180 restaurants already registered

KANSAS CITY, MO. (November 12, 2015) – Kansas City Restaurant Week presented by US Foods launched a redesigned website at in response to user feedback from the 2015 dining event. The revamped site’s new features include:

  • A menu-tagging option with special dietary restrictions, including gluten free, nut-free, vegan and vegetarian
  • A recent menu updates feature, allowing visitors to track which restaurants have recently added Restaurant Week menus
  • A grouping option for restaurants with multiple locations, allowing users to more easily view all locations and to reduce the volume of restaurant pages
  • Multiple-location restaurants will have a dropdown on each location’s page to allow users to navigate easily between locations
  • Restaurant listings load as you scroll for quicker navigation

The significant website updates join the fresh redesign launched last year by Kansas City Restaurant Week, including mapping features to clearly identify a restaurant’s location and region, as well as a section titled “Make a Night of It,” highlighting deals and packages from partner hotels and shopping districts.

Kansas City Restaurant Week returns Jan. 15-24, 2016, marking the 10-day event’s highly-anticipated seventh consecutive year. Participants in Restaurant Week will offer multi-course lunches and/or dinners for $15 and $33 respectively, highlighting existing, specially created and “limited time only” dishes. More than 180 restaurants are currently enrolled to participate in the event, benefiting five local organizations.

Donations raised during the 2016 event will benefit BoysGrow, an urban-farming initiative whose mission is to teach entrepreneurism to urban male youth; Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired, an organization offering training and educational programs to visually-impaired children and their families; and Cultivate Kansas City, an organization providing incentives for low-income families to shop at local farmers markets. The Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation and the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association Education Foundation will also receive a share of the 2016 donations.
