New Winter Offering Debuts With Modern Midwestern Favorites

KANSAS CITY, MO–(Marketwire – October 26, 2010) – It’s called the Main Street Grill, but its menu items are much more than one might expect! Located in the posh Country Club Plaza Marriott, the Main Street Grill offers modern interpretations of traditional Midwestern favorites and serves them in contemporary style. Now, in celebration of cooler temperatures, the grill has announced its new winter menu which features fresh ingredients from local and regional producers and invites Kansas City visitors and local patrons to indulge in the fresh flavors of the bountiful Midwest as part of their weekend getaways to Kansas City.

“I am proud to offer our guests a taste of Kansas City, highlighting local and regional foods of the Midwest,” said Paul Holdshoe, executive chef at the Kansas City Country Club Plaza. “With the new additions on our winter menu, I have crafted a feeling of home cooking with a fresh, contemporary twist. By using local ingredients daily in our scratch-kitchen, we also help promote sustainable agriculture, as well as local producers. The most important result, of course, is introducing our guests to some really exciting local flavors! I look forward to continuing this local trend on future menus, as well.”

This Country Club Plaza Kansas City restaurant’s new menu features popular starters and share platters including low cholesterol fare such as Olivia’s Local Hummus Duo, a popular Bruschetta Six Pack and remarkable soups. The salad and sandwich menu offers Kansas City originals such as BBQ Pork Sliders and a Loaded Steak Salad.
