Corvino Rocks . . .
We've been pretty anxious to try out Michael Corvino's eponymous new digs right there on 19th and Walnut. So the other cold and rainy night, off we go. I meet my portly companion after finding a spot on the street. It's in the building called Corrigan Station. There's parking attached.
I'm going to be brief here. This is a VERY cool place. My photos do little justice to the vibe and the food. It's not a huge menu but is based mostly on the idea of shar-ables -- but they're not huge. They are delicious and usually a different take on whatever it is. Not only did we have all the things pictured, we had the liver sausage plate with the creamiest pâté ever AND we finally left just before 10 p.m. Then we remember a double-decker hamburger was available at 10 p.m. so we turned around and came back in. That meant another crafted cocktail of course, too. The burger was meant to be somewhat crispy, as contrasted to juicy, and it was. Good bun, made in house I believe with all the other breads by a smiling bread maker we could see through the window.
This is not a cheap place, but there's no cover and the music was at the perfect volume. This is a place where you forget you're in Kansas City -- except the staff, all of it, is friendly and nice and you're not neglected. I'm going back and you should put it on your list of places you definitely should go -- and then go back.
It's evermore in this case, not nevermore.
