Restaurateur Jimmy Frantze` opened JJ's in February 1985, along with partner Matt Nichols. The contemporary American menu features locally sourced produce, poultry, beef, and lamb. It also features house-cut steaks, fresh seafood and the best port chop in the city. Our pizza recipe came to us from a friend in Chicago and it's the best thin crust in town.
With over 1,800 selections, the wine list has earned an Award of Excellence, a Best of Award of Excellence and a Grand Award from Wine Spectator magazine. We also have a library of liquors, scotches and over 50 vintage ports by the glass. Together, it all makes JJ's a must dining experience when you're visiting Kansas City.
