Located off of Main Street in downtown KC, The Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange resides keeping the history of the location alive. The hotel and restaurant opened in 2010 by the son J. Rieger. Before the Prohibition, J. Rieger and Co. Whiskey was one of the most popular whiskey distributors and was distributed out of the hotel’s current location. The hotel and grill strive to keep the history alive and prominent in the Kansas City restaurant scene.
Pictured below is the duck egg entree. A bed of avocado on the bottom, bread pudding in the middle topped with a duck egg. I have never been a fan of bread pudding, but once you cut into the duck egg the yolk adds a little something extra. Absolutely delicious!
Here is a side of their potatoes (the best potatoes I’ve ever had).
Below is the caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes, house-made mozzarella and homemade croutons.
The pesto risotto entree topped with bacon is pictured below.
I came to The Rieger for my birthday dinner. When I ordered my dessert (their own rendition of a french silk pie) they brought out a candle to go with it!
I absolutely loved this restaurant. It is definitely a little bit more pricey, but completely worth it for the perfection you are served. If you’re looking to go somewhere for a special occasion or celebration definitely consider The Rieger.
The Rieger Hotel Grill and Exchange gets a 10/10.
