Kansas Citians welcomed several new eateries in September, and fitting for the times, most of them are fast-casual options with carryout available.

In East Brookside, Mattie’s Foods debuted its vegan breakfast and lunch comfort fare, including crispy chicken sandwiches with spicy vegan queso, and griddle breakfast sandwiches with vegan sausage and eggs, smothered in agave cheese. A few miles north in the Crossroads, the long-awaited dedicated location for chef Michael Corvino’s Ravenous opened in Parlor food hall, serving his beloved cheeseburgers, Bolognese-drenched fries and malts. Nestled in Overland Park’s prominent new food hall, Strang Hall, Minglewood began serving its American classics, including chicken-fried steak and a meatloaf sandwich served with Kansas aged Cheddar, crispy onions and jalapeños on grilled sourdough.

In Westport, the newest location of portion-friendly breakfast and brunch spot The Big Biscuit has opened near the Sunfresh grocery store, while down in Lee’s Summit the latest Made in KC Marketplace + Café debuted, offering coffee and locally produced food products alongside its other retail offerings. Finally, the Turner neighborhood in Kansas City, Kansas, welcomed The Windmill, a new artisan coffee shop that also serves pastries and other snacks.

We also said goodbye to two much-loved restaurants this month, including chef Chrissy Nuccum’s KC Pinoy in the West Bottoms, as well as Urban Table in Prairie Village.
