The Savoy at 21C is Kansas City's Swanky New Spot for Drinks

After a years-long renovation, one of the oldest restaurants in Kansas City, the Savoy Grill, unveiled itself earlier this summer as The Savoy at 21c. The swanky new restaurant features a dining room, lounge and private event space. This revamped classic preserves the original restaurant’s 1903 Wild West-inspired murals in the lounge, gorgeous stained-glass windows and the “Presidents’ Booth” that was a favorite of Presidents Truman, Ford and Reagan.

Bar director Dominic Petrucci’s cocktail list consists of five “heritage” cocktails that are then mirrored in exciting new ways on the “vogue” side of the menu: A classic Bee’s Knee’s becomes an intriguing Cat’s Kimono with gin, shiso, broiled lemon and turmeric. The tailored wine list features sparkling, red, white, rosé and orange selections, plus an apéritif list to start and some fortified wines to finish.

A creative beer list, nonalcoholic Tea-Biotics kombuchas, Thou Mayest coffee and Hugo Teas round out the offerings. Chef Joe West delivers a small yet memorable bar menu, including steamed mussels, a dry-aged double steak burger and steak frites.
