Kansas City native Ryan Brazeal shipped out to New York City to hone his culinary skills before bringing his craft back to the Midwest. Throw in Jessica Armstrong’s exquisite desserts, and you have a recipe for enjoyment. Novel has turned New-American cuisine to “Novel-American cuisine” in the Crossroads. Using ingredients from local farmers, Novel creates dishes like Crispy Egg. Come in to enjoy Novel’s dishes, as well as the nearly 50-foot mosaic that sprawls across the wall of the restaurant.

“The Block” takes viewers on a journey through Kansas City’s streets to get a sense of the people and cuisine ― the fabric of KC’s neighborhoods. But this isn’t just a food show. There’s history, culture, and unknown facts about Kansas City. You’ll go inside kitchens, see how food and drink products are made, and peek into of the lives of everyday Kansas Citians working in the service industry.

“The Block” is a series produced by G10 Creative. Watch for Flatland digital shorts on Fridays through September 5. Then watch KCPT at 7:30 p.m. on September 5, 12 and 19 for full 30-minute shows.
