Nestled in the heart of Crestwood is the locally-owned Bacaro Primo, one of Blake’s personal favorites! Created by a curator of other amazing KC restaurants favored by locals, Bacaro features an Italian-inspired menu driven by Midwestern seasonality. Their dynamic wine list and beverage program round out a delightful dining experience. Blake says to ask for Kenny at the bar, he will take excellent care of you. Make sure to add an order of meatballs for the table!
