THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nick & Stef's Steakhouse Restaurant Review:

Despite sharing the same space with the MCI Center, management has sagely retained a starkly sophisticated look here and hasn't succumbed to an all-sports venue. Thus, it's dressy enough to wine and dine VIPs. Yet, after games upstairs you can bet that fans come to this steakhouse dressed in their sweats and sport togs, ready to dig into lusty steak dinners. The kitchen, under the direction of executive chef Andreas Weller, takes its meats seriously; just check out the glassed-in dry-aging room opposite the front door. Menu items are grouped by the dozen and are categorized by starters, vegetables, meat entrées, sauces and potatoes. There are also daily specials such as the bone-in 20-ounce Kansas City strip steak. Dry-rubbed with a salt and pepper mix pressed into the meat, this steak comes with a charred and crusty exterior that seals in all the meat juices and flavors. Everything on the menu is à la carte. Appealing potato sides include a crispy blue cheese potato cake, two variations of mashed potatoes and sweet potato fries. Lemon meringue pie and a classic American chocolate cake are good desserts.
