Located in the historic Crossroads Art District of downtown Kansas City, The Rieger can be summed up as a “Classic American Grill”. But that only tells a small part of the whole story. From the moment you walk through the front door of this beautifully restored 95 year old former hotel.In keeping with the classic feel of the building, the bar features a from-scratch approach using only fresh-squeezed juices and homemade ingredients. Our knowledgeable bartenders are well trained in classic cocktails and mixology. The great cuisines of the world were not created in lush palaces in giant cosmopolitan centers, but in places very much like Kansas City. Rich culinary traditions were formed in medium sized cities, in the heartland of various countries, with access to farmland, forests and prairies. In Italy, this was in Parma, Modena and Bologna in Emilia-Romagna; in Mexico it was in places like Oaxaca and Puebla; in France, it was in Lyon and Dijon in Burgundy.
