For the first time since we've lived in Kansas City, we got in the car and drove to dinner. One of the benefits to living downtown is that we can walk everywhere and we take full advantage. But sometimes a change of scenery is necessary even if it means it's less convenient. I visited KC for the first time almost exactly one year ago and our first dinner out was at Cafe Des Amis. Saturday night was cool and stormy and this little French restaurant is so cozy that it seemed like the perfect place to spend the evening.
