Some of you may be familiar with Lidia Bastianich from the Food Channel or cookbooks, her name is well known. This is her restaurant here in KC just down the street from the Kauffman Center and the food is fabulous. The space is in a former railroad house and resembles a large Italian farmhouse. This area is known as the Freight House district and is just north across the railroad tracks from Union Station.
The trees up front are suffering from the extreme heat we have experienced for the last two weeks. The Missouri river is still high and a major highway north to Omaha is still closed due to flooding.
