"Inventive Mexican food – unlike anything else around town"
What started as Kansas City’s most talked about dining experience — authentic Mexican cuisine served from custom Airstream trailer — Port Fonda has taken that grassroots success and turned it into one of Kansas Cities most compelling restaurants. A home away from home for people that value quality, local ingredients, and creative expressions of rustic Mexican cuisine. Open seven days a week, Port Fonda also boasts an owner recently a James Beard Foundation 2015 Semifinalist for Best Chef: Midwest.
Over the course of his twenty year long career as a chef, Patrick Ryan has always focused on simple, ingredient-driven food influenced by the flavors of rustic, Mexican cantina cooking. Instrumental in the farm-dinners of Green Dirt Farms, Patrick brings that focus on authentic ingredients to Port Fonda where he was chosen as Kansas City’s best chef by Pitch Magazine, nominated for Food & Wine People's Best New Chef Midwest 2013 and 2014 and most recently a semifinalist for James Beard Awards' Best Chef-Midwest.
