Yia Yia's Eurobistro
Posted on 08/14/2012 by laserturkey
My favorite restaurant in the Kansas City area is probably the Yia Yia's Eurobistro at 119th and Roe in Leawood. They are phenomenally good about adapting things for special diets. Today I had their pepperoni pizza on a gluten free crust, but had them leave off the pepperoni, since I'm vegetarian. The server knew before I asked that I would need cucumber slices instead of bread to dip in the baba ghanouj that they always bring you. The pizza (roasted garlic and crimini mushrooms) was fantastic, and I had to really force myself not to snarf the whole thing. The soup of the day is often vegetarian and always delicious. Today's was a red pepper gazpacho, but I skipped that, knowing I wanted pizza because I needed comfort food. I see that they now have gluten free pasta, as well, so I may check that out at some point. Yia Yia's is kind of on the pricey side, but we buy gift cards at Costco, so $100 to spend there only costs us $80. Today's lunch of pizza for me and a burger for my husband was about $24 before the tip.
