Culinary Team

Culinarians at InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza – whether involved with the restaurant, pool or banquet/catering/wedding preparation and presentation – are all about food and beverage passion and excellence.


Whether selecting produce, poultry, beef, seafood or specialty items or beverage offerings, InterContinental Kansas City’s culinary team vision is to provide a memorable culinary experience for all diners at American Slang Modern Brasserie and in-room dining as well as the hotel’s valued banquet and catering guests. With loads of items and offerings locally sourced.

This happens through established relationships with many and diverse local and regional food and beverage suppliers, wholesalers and distributors. And by ‘local,’ we mean vendors within a 150-mile radius!

The selection process begins with the products and ingredients themselves. Our culinary team is in lock-step with each resource grower and partner who carefully, and with drive and passion of their own, delivers our food and beverage needs.

Of the many local and regional small brewers, distillers, bakers and businesses who were thoughtfully considered, the following are a representative few who were carefully chosen for their commitment to providing hand-selected superior products direct.

From the finest charcuteries to cheeses, fine chocolates to high-end coffees, InterContinental Kansas City diners will know their culinary experience will be second to none.
