If you’re looking for a burger in the Crossroads Arts District that will make your taste buds dance, head over to Howard’s Grocery, Cafe and Catering.
With organic or grass-fed beef, a potato bun and special burger sauce, this sandwich is about as natural as you can get. To add a splash of flavor to their famous burgers, Howard’s adds pickled vegetables (that change depending on the season). You can also come in and get some of Howard’s freshly grown produce if you are in the mood to cook at home.
Proprietor Craig Howard sees his establishment as providing more than merely food. It’s more of a farm-to-table expression of his art.
“Howard’s is a cafe,” Howard says. “But it’s really a way to have a conversation about food.”
A most satisfying conversation can be found at Howard’s, 1708 Oak St. in the Crossroads.
“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 drinks are made, and peek into 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 Sept. 5. Then watch KCPT at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 5, 12 and 19 for full 30-minute shows.
