    Dishes, including tableside–prepared Caesar salads and parmesan–breaded Chilean sea bass, are offered in what was once the atrium of an old-fashioned department store in South Kansas City. An extensive two-month renovation completed in September 2006 enhanced the art nouveau charm of the old elevator cages and linen-covered tables with a hip and contemporary, Moroccan-influenced atmosphere. The intimate setting and modern menu are worth the 20-minute drive from Downtown.
