Celebrate moms a day early with Affäre’s special Mother’s Day pre fixe dinner menu on Saturday, May 9

A Sunday Mother’s Day brunch will also be offered on Sunday, May 10; All menu items feature responsibly sourced ingredients dishes with German influence

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (May 1, 2015) – Affäre is celebrating Mother’s Day with a special three-course pre fixe dinner menu on Saturday, May 9 and additions to its regular brunch menu on Sunday, May 10. The two menus reflect Executive Chef Martin Hauser’s German heritage and Affäre’s commitment to serving responsibly sourced meats, vegetables and other foods and ingredients.

Both menus include a spring-run Columbia River Salmon, regarded as one of the highest quality breeds because of the fish’s high oil content of nearly 22 percent – double that of the more common Atlantic Salmon. The menus also feature Merino lamb, a naturally leaner lamb from the alpine regions of New Zealand. 

Reservations for Mother’s Day events are available by calling 816-298-6182 or visiting
