Eat + Shop: New to KC


Posted on August 24th, by Melanie

 It’s amazing to me how much Kansas City is growing and evolving. I love all the local brands and businesses that have been popping up in the past few years. Two new faves of mine are 1889 Pizza in Mission and The Jeweled Gypsy on The Country Club Plaza.

1889 Neopolitan Pizza just opened a few weeks ago in the strip mall right by Joe’s and Taco Republic. From the decor to the pizza, you will love the entire experience. They have custom pizzas, or you can do a make your own. They have some great apps to choose from and a nice wine and beer selection. The owner told us they are adding desserts soon!

We tried the Tre Truffi which was 3 different dips paired with bread. This was a hit with everyone, including the kids

I tried “the Mahalo”, which is their take on a Hawaiian pizza. They add chicken and jalapenos (which I did not get) But it was very good! The kids had cheese and Jon had the “Butcher” which was packed with meat. He loved it!

I am anxious to go back and try the “Green Eggs and Ham” ! It’s a great spot for families, and they have a wonderful patio (which I forgot to take pics of). We will definitely go back…

The Jeweled Gypsy Truck has been driving their goods around town the past few years, but now they have a popup space on the plaza! It is right next to Season’s 52 on Ward Parkway.

The space itself is beautifully decorated; you will find treasures in every corner. They have jewelry, accessories and a small amount of clothing.  Their styles ranges from bohemian, to edgy and classic…

They have rings, earrings, necklaces; you name it they have it! Not pictured here, but they also have a nice little section of dressier/bridal jewelry from local designer Lily Dawson.
