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.

Holiday Takeout PromotionNovember and December

Make your personal holiday entertaining a bit simpler this year. From now through year’s end, consider this holiday takeout option – American Slang’s renowned Charcuterie Platter! Those who are able to plan just 24 hours in advance will be rewarded with a delectable pickup (for small home or office events of 6 – 12).

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.
