Lidia and Joseph Bastianich opened Lidia's Kansas City together with David Wagner, a Kansas City native, in a former railroad house just north of Kansas City's historic Union Station. Designed by acclaimed New York architect David Rockwell, the restaurant evokes the feel of an Italian farmhouse despite its tremendous size. Lidia's Kansas City features a daily tasting of three fresh, homemade pastas, modeled on the popular pasta service at the Bastianich family's Becco in New York. Or diners can choose entrees such as a roasted veal shank featured a rich sauce lightened with fresh orange and carrot juices, frico or envelope of Montasio cheese with a variety of fillings or the beautiful grilled salmon served over braised lentils with a zesty chive-mustard sauce. Lidia's Kansas City is proud to offer two wine lists-one with wines at $ 18.00 a bottle and a second with premium vintages.
