The Savoy Grill, a legend in time, is back in service.
A lot of us remember the Savoy Grill as a child. Well, it’s back in service.
About 15 to 20 people who work in various departments of the Savoy Grill are from Wyandotte County, and make history come alive.
The Savoy Grill, one of the most successful restaurants in Kansas City history, reopened about three weeks ago.
Prices are reasonable for what you get, for the most part. As you enter the restaurant, you see how the past has evolved into the present.
The new owners have totally redone this place to make it one of the biggest legends in Kansas City history. Legend has it that well-known figures in Kansas City history ate at the Savoy Grill. Once, according to legend, Houdini was locked into a phone booth there.
I give this restaurant five stars in all categories, service, quality and décor. This is one of those places that you must try before you die. I highly recommend it with five stars all the way around. This is truly a legend in its own time.
The Savoy Grill is one of Kansas City’s most distinctive landmarks. It recently reopened and a lot of people from Wyandotte County work there, helping this legend of the past come alive.
The restaurant is at 219 W. 9th St., Kansas City, Missouri.
