The Jacobson in the Crossroads
The fun of Kansas City Restaurant Week continues with a visit to The Jacobson in Kansas City, specifically in the Crossroads Art District.
"The J" actually has a really cool history. A.D. Jacobson was the brother of Edward “Eddie” Jacobson. Eddie Jacobson was a business partner and close personal friend of Harry S. Truman. The two owned and operated The Truman and Jacobson Haberdashery together in downtown Kansas City for many years.
Today, you'll find art and decor from local Kansas City artists and a patio with skyline views. Not to mention a unique menu with options you can't wait to try. They also have an incredible signature cocktail and flask service.
LaShonda (Fashion Plate KC) and I dined at The Jacobson for dinner and the food was nothing short of amazing. They also offered a $15.00 wine pairing with each course. Our server, John, did an excellent job explaining the different options and how the wine would compliment each course.
My first course was the Stuffed Meatballs made with seasoned ground beef and pork filled with goat cheese and finished with roasted garlic marinara. This was paired with a white wine.
For the second course, I opted for the Roasted Bourbon Glazed Salmon. John said they are known for their salmon so an even better reason to try it. Also, I think I found my food weakness - food cooked with alcohol always gets me. John was right - the salmon was delicious. It was served with Yukon potatoes that had the best seasoning and fresh green beans.
Dessert options were a Banana and White Chocolate Bread Pudding or a Salted Butterscotch Pudding. I went for the bread pudding and LaShonda picked the butterscotch. They were a perfect finish to the meal - not to heavy and just the right amount of sweetness. This was paired with a dessert wine.
I highly recommend you visit The Jacobson. I already have plans to treat Jacob to a nice meal - maybe for our anniversary next month!
