Barbacoa is another spot that’s putting a twist on Kansas City BBQ, although this time, it’s with a fine dining Mexican angle. They excel at meats like flavorful suadero, smoked carnitas with tomatillo salsa, as well as beef ribs paired with salsa macha. The citrusy and fruit-forward cocktails are also good, but don’t ignore the smoky mescal espresso martini on the dessert menu. After dinner, take a two-minute walk up Troost Ave. to Gaels Public House, and if you’re here for brunch, save room for Blackhole Bakery’s incredible mochi donuts right down the street.
