The bar and restaurant inside The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center now has a new name, look and chef. One East Urban Bar & Kitchen boasts a lively and communal bar area featuring 12 local craft beers on tap, a well-curated wine list and cocktails made with local spirits from Tom’s Town Distilling Co. and J. Rieger & Co.

Chef de cuisine Charles Barr, formerly of The Savoy at 21c, has developed a seasonal menu of modern American dishes. The carrot-ginger-lemongrass soup, for example, is an ideal first course followed by the Pickled Fried Chicken Sandwich for lunch or the grilled four-ounce tenderloin for dinner, served with tomato béarnaise and black truffle grits with veal jus.
