It hurts to admit it- my friends were right. Associates have long insisted that Blue Koi is one the best restaurant groups in Kansas City. Although I set out to prove them wrong, my recent experience at the new Leawood location was nothing short of spectacular. Outside of dim sum at Bo Ling's, Blue Koi's creative kitchen staff served up the best Chinese-based meal I've had in this town. I'm late to the party. My fellow diners included local celebrities and the power elite.
