Sebastienne at the Kemper.

Friday night was my last night in Kansas City. We went to the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art to have dinner at Café Sebastienne.

We ate before going to the galleries, Oona ordering a dirty martini and I a local pale ale. We ordered a watermelon, tomato, & goat cheese salad and mussels cooked in coconut milk curry. Here is evidence of how good it was. And it was under $30.00. Try that in Rich-mond

curry-stained plates..
We got some nice rolls with which to sop this up..

Here is some of the impressive art we saw.
