Chaz, for all that jazz (Kansas City, Missouri)

Chaz is rated by TripAdvisor reviewers as one of Kansas City’s best restaurants.

DISH FROM DINERS: “I didn’t know crab cakes could taste this good. Seriously, taste them. Please. Please. Fried green tomatoes were a close second. I had beef tenderloin and my husband had the veal. WOW. Sooo good.”
