KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Kansas City's Restaurant Week, you don't want to make a wine blunder. That's why Dennis Kreps, owner of Quintessential Wines , stopped by NBC Action News Midday to share his wine expertise with us.
Here are some of Dennis’s pairings for the perfect table.
Appetizers Simonsig Chenin Blanc (paired with Coquille St. Jacques)
Seafood entrée Gustave Lorentz Pinot Blanc (paired with grilled shrimp)
Pasta entrée Elsa Malbec (paired with a hearty pasta in red meat sauce)

Dessert Vino dei Fratelli Moscato d’Asti (paired with Peach Melba or other fruity dessert)
An exhibition of Kansas City's finest culinary talents, Kansas City Restaurant Week will offer a variety of mouth-watering foods from top chefs across the metro area, demonstrating why the KC dining scene is among the nation's best--and up until now, one of the best-kept foodie secrets (the Zagat Survey has called Kansas City the No. 1 dining bargain of all the major cities it reviews).
Restaurant Week features an array of restaurant participants so that diners can visit old favorites and also try the many new restaurants that have opened recently in the Kansas City metro area. KC Restaurant Week diners order from special prix-fixe menus at participating restaurants. Multi-course lunches are $15 and dinners are $30.
