I was at Nara as back in March when they hosted the Urban Picnic. They have an event space above the restaurant that is a perfect venue for hosting events and parties.
A couple days later I noticed my coat was missing. I decided Nara was the last place I had it. So I called and sure enough it was there.
I just happened to have my Foodie KC deck and it had a card in there for $10.00 off Nara. I thought perfect; I can retrieve my coat and have dinner too. Well the evening got away from us and we did not end up getting to Nara until after 10:00 p.m.
That actually did not turn out to be a bad thing. The place was hopping and the atmosphere was great. I loved the urban décor and vibe from the music. Nara hosts a wonderful late night happy hour with great drink specials and ½ price appetizers. What a deal!
My husband really likes Sushi, so we ordered a variety of sushi items from the menu. I ate the California Roll but other than that I am not a big sushi or seafood fan. They do make a mean California Roll and I am happy to go to a place where both of us can get something we like. If you are a sushi lover Nara has an exceptional sushi menu and it is all fresh and made to order.
We also got these delectable chicken skewers, an order of crab rangoon and edamame. The chicken skewers were tender and had a wonderful Asian sauce and the edamame perfectly steamed a lightly salted. I love cracking open the edamame pods and popping those little green gems that are hiding inside right into my mouth. Steve really likes crab rangoon, they are not my favorite, but I tried a bite and the shell was crispy and the filling perfectly creamy.
Our waitress Colleen was an absolute doll and we had a wonderful time. It seemed we got so caught up in conversation about how good everything was I forgot to use our Foodie KC card. Nara’s late night happy hour is a great deal and our bill was only $29. That included our food, beer and wine all without the discount. I guess I will just have to go back again to use my card, and I am thinking it may be pretty soon because for some reason, I am really craving a California Roll right now.
If you haven’t been to Nara put it on your list. You will love the hip urban feel of the atmosphere and the food even better.
Also don’t forget they have rental space available if you are need of somewhere for your next event.
