Restaurants in Kansas City

Upcoming Events

Something culinarily compelling happens often on the Kansas City cuisine scene. Among the area’s diverse restaurants. American Slang Modern Brasserie now included.

Diners and bar-goers, of course, can expect the restaurant to be ‘open’ daily. After all, American Slang is easily accessible on the lobby level of the InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza.

What matters, too, is what happens at the bar/eatery when it comes time for special events or holiday dining – whether its Valentine’s Day or Easter. Mother’s Day or Thanksgiving. Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

Here’s what’s offered next.

The 86th Annual Plaza Art FairFriday, September 22 - Sunday, September 24

Kansas City’s unofficial annual welcome to the fall season begins with The Plaza Art Fair! And this year – in American Slang’s inaugural year – you can count on us being an integral part of this year’s fun (and tasty) festivities!

The Fair itself encompasses nine city blocks and over 250,000 locals and tourists attend! Featuring 240 artists, the Plaza Art Fair is a top-ranked, national art event with three live music stages and over 25 featured restaurant booths.

As our plans are finalized, you’ll find them here.

Country Club Plaza LightsThursday, November 23, 2017 - Sunday, January 13, 2018

One of Kansas City’s most grand annual traditions happens on the Country Club Plaza. It begins each Thanksgiving evening and runs through mid-January. And one of the very best views of the holiday lights is from American Slang Modern Brasserie!

The ‘Plaza Lights’ are stunning in volume. Dazzling in beauty. Brilliant in simplicity. The lighting ceremony ushers in the Kansas City holiday season and is a must-see, must-do event for Kansas City families and visitors who come to town just to be a part of the magic.

Don’t take our word for it! Come see for yourself.
