A Destination...

Kansas City is a beautiful canvas for artists and chefs alike. Our diners are hungry, adventurous, trusting, but more importantly honest at the core. This means that no matter how far we love to push the boundaries, certain fundamental qualities of the dining experience must never be diminished.

Moving back to the Midwest was a goal for chef Jason. Family, wide open spaces, and as much green as his Southern California-starved eyes could take in were more than enough motivation to return! More importantly he understand the values and passions of the communities we grew up in and can translate that knowledge back to our guests through our food, and our hospitality.

We are proud to be a part of such a vibrant and diverse DESTINATION CITY!

" I believe that we cannot truly be considered a FRENCH restaurant for many reasons, the most fundamental being -- we are not in FRANCE! It's similar to the idea that if someone tried to sell me a New York hot dog outside NYC I would not buy it on principle! Old, dirty, New York water -- the taxi smog, skyscrapers everywhere, the overwhelming sense of history and importance...all of these are crucial ingredients and part of an experience which of course cannot and should not be had here in the Midwest.

That being said, there is absolutely no reason to shun serving food that is homage to the original. Adding decor that grants a little escape from our everyday routine is crucial in creating a perfect soiree. Standing on the shoulders of giants is a privilege, and the French have mastered certain techniques as well as a sophisticated level of romance that deserves recreation and renovation! Keeping true to our Midwest-American core values and sensibilities is important to me, hence our delightful dance between Old French & New American! " -- chef jason

Jason Craine

Jason originally went to school with film direction in mind. On his way to earning a B.S. in technical theatre he cooked and eventually managed a locally owned Greek-American restaurant. Upon meeting the mother of his beautiful daughter, Charisse, at this very restaurant, he decided that his rapidly increasing passion for all things culinary could no longer be ignored.

Jason continued his training under Chef Jim Douglas (former Wolfgang Puck Chef).
