Can I have some remedy?

Friday night a new craft beer bar celebrated its Grand Opening in Waldo (a little late I know, sorry bloggers have lives too).  Remedy Food + Drink has taken over the location formerly occupied by Kennedy's.  Unlike its Sports/Irish bar predecessor, Remedy considers itself a gastropub.  Whatever they want to call themselves, with 12 craft beers on tap and over 50 more available in bottles, Remedy is another bar worthy of KC beer drinkers' attention.  In addition to the beer, they are also offering handcrafted cocktails, boutique wines, and fresh made from scratch food.  All of this in a casual atmosphere with competitive Waldo prices.  Cheers to another craft beer bar in KC! 

I haven't had time to check it out yet, did anyone make it to the Grand Opening on Friday?  Any first impressions you'd like to share?


  1. I had an hour to kill at 75th in Waldo tonight and Remedy was just the remedy. I had never any desire to go to Kennedy's, so I don't know what they've changed, but it's a pretty nice place with a decent beer selection and looks to have good food. I didn't pay much attention to the menu other than the appetizers. I had carrot fettucine with swiss chard and a side of cauliflower mashed potatoes, both of which were very good. They weren't inexpensive and there is no happy hour, so it's not a budget spot.

    The bartenders were two attractive ladies who seemed to be on top of things and the clientele wasn't rowdy, so I'll definitely go back once in a while, since I'm often in that vicinity.

  2. I had lunch there this week. BLT with housemade thick cut bacon and heirloom tomatoes, cauliflower mashed potatoes, and a glass of Duvel on draft. Really enjoyed it. Bartender seemed really passionate about his work, which helps.
