Strang Chef Collectives at Cascade Hotel on the Plaza

Strang Chef Collectives takes local chefs and new restaurant concepts and puts them inside of mixed-use real estate developments, bringing professional and curated food and beverage service into every building. Their newest project will open this fall inside the sleek new Cascade Hotel, part of the Marriott Bonvoy collection, located just north of the Country Club Plaza. The Plaza location marks the third Kansas City location for Strang Chef Collectives joining Strang Hall in downtown Overland Park and Lightwell located in downtown Kansas City. The first of the four new restaurant concepts have been announced with the chef Chris Jones heading up Khai-Noy, featuring Southeast Asian cuisine inspired by the food of Thailand and Laos. Guests can expect to enjoy delicacies such as a pork belly platter, chilaquiles, curry fried rice, and purple ube cookies. Jones previously worked as a sous chef under Anourom Thomson, the chef who operates Anousone inside of Strang Hall, and says that is where he first learned to appreciate the cuisine and flavors of Southeast Asia.
