Unusual restaurants

My wife and I will be in Kansas City/Overland Park area next weekend and are looking for an unusual restaurant for Saturday night. Looking for anything unusual. Example: two years ago we were in Madison Wisconsin and dined at a restaurant that used to be a horse stable.

Any ideas will be appreciated.

Unquestionably the best place to go for cocktails is Manifesto, in the basement of The Rieger on 20th/Main downtown. All of my out-of-town guests get treated to a couple rounds at Manifesto before going to eat somewhere. You can eat upstairs at the Rieger, which is good, but the real treat is the dark, old dungeon down below. You need to text for reservations (and do it early, they book up quickly on weekends):


Fritz's, although cool, is for kids, not an adult meal.

You might want to consider one of the restaurants at the Freight House. There are three restaurants in the building: Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue - Downtown, Grunauer, or Lidia's Restaurant. The Freight House is a 500 ft long building that was constructed in 1887 to house freight unloaded by trains.
