TEMPORARILY CLOSED

 

The health and safety of our cherished staff and guests is our highest concern. We have tried to do everything possible to keep our house safe - masks, social distancing, constant hand washing, disinfectants, UV lighting in our heating and cooling units, as well as constant vigilance to protect everyone.

 

We have learned that two of our employees have tested positive for Covid. Neither of these employees showed any symptoms while at work.  Out of an abundance of caution, we believe it is in everyone’s best interest that we immediately close, while everyone on the staff goes into quarantine. We believe any exposure to our guests was at a minimum. We plan to reopen Tuesday, December 1st, after all of our staff has been tested and received a negative test result before returning to work.

 

Thank you so much for your understanding. These are terrible times and together we will get through them. BE SAFE!!

Fine cuisine in a fun-filled
atmosphere!!

Welcome to a bit of France and New York City tucked away on the corner of 5th and Oak in Kansas City's River Market. Chef/Proprietor Mano Rafael and wife, Barbara, invite you to experience fresh and elegant food, soft lighting, cozy tables, charming servers and an atmosphere that is relaxing, fun and totally unpretentious. We invite you to "be our guest!"

GREAT NEWS!
We are now open for lunch and dinner. We will be serving lunch Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (12-2). Dinner will be available Tuesday - Sunday opening at 5pm. The inside has been configured for your safety.  We even paid the big bucks to install ULTRAVIOLET LIGHTS in our air conditioner and heating system. But what did we do with all those tables? Patio just got BIGGER! All social distanced of course.
For reservations call (816) 474-6060. Patio requests will be difficult because Kansas City weather is so unpredictable!
Make your reservation for inside and in the note request “patio”, however, let us know if you will be unwilling to sit inside. There aren’t that many tables left in there so if you won’t be joining us, please let us know ASAP!!!

We are so excited to see you all!!

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to leave the group that we helped start, The Kansas City Originals. Dining local and supporting other like-minded businesses will always be important to us and we will continue to support our fellow restaurateurs. With the crazy new technology of the Powercard, we felt it hurt more than helped. Hopefully after this Pandemic clears, and we can open at full capacity, we can resume our legacy to reward our loyal customers who have never wavered. I'm sorry we have to do this, but the pressure and the ineptitude of the new Powercard system just made it impossible. We thank you for all of your support you've given us and our fellowship. We appreciate you. Sincerely, Barbara Rafael
