Iron District

The businesses in North Kansas City’s Iron District share an address (1599 Iron St.), but they’re not exactly under one roof. That’s because the concept is less of a food hall and more of an outdoor food court, with eating, drinking, and shopping destinations operating out of custom-built shipping containers. Conceptualized by Plantain District food truck co-founder Rachel Kennedy Cuevas, Iron District officially opened in October and is currently home to an outpost of Cuevas’ own Cuban concept, plant-based Kind Food, comfort-food restaurant B-Rads, breakfast spot Morning Day Café, and fast-casual avocado bar Avobite. Visitors will also find allergy-friendly bakery Safe Bakes, Snow Buh by Ice Cream Bae, and rum-centric cocktail destination Tiki Huna, as well as a handful of retail businesses.
