About Shanley

Welcome to Out to Eat, the culinary chronicles of a hungry 20-nothing. If you’re here looking for the most delicious and unique dishes in Kansas City (and beyond) – you’re in the right place.

Four years ago, I merged my passions for writing, food and photography and this blog was born. Now I’m on a mission to share the “good food news” and help others appreciate local restaurants, bars and businesses. I hope Out to Eat ignites your appetite and inspires you to eat local wherever you go.
