From ritzy restaurants to farm-to-table favorites, Leawood has a wide range of eateries to please your palate.
If you’re in the mood for something a little more fancy, the upscale dining options in Leawood are not few and far between. Bristol Seafood Grill and 801 Chophouse are both designed for you to get your fresh fish or steak fix (respectively). Or try Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que (formerly Oklahoma Joe’s)—an award-winning Kansas City classic that has mouth-watering barbecue. (The original restaurant is located in a gas station in Kansas City at 47th and Mission.)
Enjoy a more intimate setting at one of the many farm-to-table restaurants at Mission Farms (103rd and Mission Road). Here you can find many KC originals like Rye (think: scotch salmon and griddle-seared hanger steak), Room 39 (goat cheese gnocchi and honey del duck breast) and Tavern (pan-seared sea scallops and filet mignon). When it comes to authentic Chinese cuisine, the super cool Blue Koi dumpling and noodles restaurant doesn’t disappoint either.
With more than 80 shiny stores and restaurants, Town Center Plaza and Town Center Crossing (119 & Roe) are the places to survey what’s new at Anthropologie, Sundance, Brooks Brothers, Madewell, and more fashionable shops.

If you are in the mood for something more old school, check out the Glenwood Arts Theatre. Yes, technically, it has an Overland Park address but being since it's so close (95th & Mission Road) we're including it here.

Perhaps you prefer to see the actors in person? In that case head to the outdoor amphitheatre in Ironwoods Park. Here you can always catch the Leawood Stage Company performing a classic play.
