Downtown Dish


The Downtown Dish is your virtual opportunity to sit down with Downtown KC chefs, bartenders, baristas, retailers, and artists each week.


It serves up what’s new, in the works, and on the menu in the re-emerging Downtown dining, shopping, and entertainment scenes. It’s all in the name of supporting businesses that make Downtown KC the vibrant heart of our city.

The Downtown Dish is a collaboration with the KC Streetcar, Downtown Council, the Downtown Neighborhood Association, Lynchpin Ideas, and the downtown districts. This weekly talk show is hosted by the fabulous Katy Schamberger @katywrites.
