The Raphael in Kansas City was originally an apartment building but has since been converted to a hotel and restaurant that is among the most romantic in Kansas City.
A visit to The Raphael in Kansas City is like stepping into a small, vintage European hotel and restaurant. Built in 1927 as an apartment building, this nine-story brick structure went through a complete restoration in 1975, which preserved the classic architecture. It then opened as The Raphael, a favorite among Kansas City natives as well as visitors.
Noted as one of the city’s most romantic restaurants, The Raphael is situation on a tree-lined neighborhood boulevard overlooking Brush Creek and the Plaza. The charm, character, and intimacy won the property a place on the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Gold List on the top 500 hotels in the world.
The Raphael’s cuisine is billed as creative Continental and new American, yet it is rooted in classic French fundamentals. Executive Chef Peter Hahn brings his neo-classic cooking style to the kitchen.
Peter serves a monthly Prix Fixe meal, which is designed to offer an adventuresome dining experience that includes a wine pairing to compliment each dish. This is a delicious way to enjoy Peter’s skill at its best.
