Featured Restaurant

Nestled in the heart of the vibrant KC Crossroads District at 20th and Central, The Jacobson is another KC Originals great success story growing and thriving in its 5th year. Named after the building and business that once occupied this space, The Jacobson is known for its innovative food and beverage program, casual yet hip and comfortable ambiance, and arguably one of KC's finest urban patio spaces. And, according to Mike Werner, the Managing Partner of the local Leap Hospitality that owns and operates this urban oasis, "capturing the Crossroads experience and showcasing what Urban KC has to offer" is what it's all about and the key to their success.

We sat down with Mike over lunch and devoured some of The Jacobson's superb food, while he shared great stories about growing up in a family immersed in the food and entertainment industry in the northern Great Lakes region. We highly recommend the Indian Summer Salad [we added some grilled Salmon]; although throughout the meal it was hard not to lust after the Fish Tacos that Mike ordered. They looked totally delicious as well. And the table next to us had Burgers [a house specialty] - they are a meat lover's juicy indulgence to be sure and also totally tempting. But we digress.   Click here for Full Story
